Arts Council England has been conducting a “conversation” which is arts speak for consultation. The word that should have been used is debate. The consultation has been running for 12 weeks and concludes on the 12th April 2018.
The Arts Council asked a number of questions under the following subject headings:
- Looking to the future
- Role of the sector
- The role of public funding in arts, museums and libraries
- Funding strategy – ‘great’ arts, museums and libraries
- Arts Council England’s role beyond funding
Please see Arts Council England pdf below for my response to three of the questions; looking to the future, funding strategy and Arts Council England’s role.
