VAMOS - Good News . Arts Council Englan's National Portfolio Organisation from April 2018

Good Afternoon,

I am delighted to share with you that Vamos have been selected as one of Arts

Council England’s National Portfolio Organisations from April 2018.


As one of the only full mask theatre companies in the UK the investment will allow

for increased opportunities for audiences and participants to access and celebrate

the unique world of mask theatre.


The investment will enable the company to deliver their award winning and critically

acclaimed full mask theatre to audiences and participants, both nationally and

internationally. Vamos will continue to lead the way in inspiring audiences with their

trademark style that marries full mask theatre with engaging storytelling, physical

dexterity and emotional insight. This investment from the Arts Council will further

enable Vamos to continue working with some of the hardest to reach audiences due

to complex barriers of engagement and ensure that art is accessible and enriching

for all.


We are thrilled, elated and joyous! It's a truly magnificent achievement and a

statement of belief, trust and confidence in the Company from Arts Council

England; a recognition for all the years (11yrs) of hard graft, quality work, national

and international touring; work delivered with devotion, integrity, honesty and with a

true social spirit. Inspired work which has touched the hearts of people of all ages

across the spectrum; it could only have been achieved with the most incredible and

ambitious team. Vamos is a family of immensely loyal, devoted and talented people

for which I thank each and every one. 


Best wishes
