Since 2004 Beacon has received funding in excess of £180,000, Arts Council East Midlands being the major together with ERDF funding through Lincolnshire Creative Solutions Initiative. Other funding includes four district councils, University of Lincoln and private sponsorship.The project aims to offer a new perspective on contemporary rural culture through collaboration between curator, artist, site and audience.
