Arts Council England

Arts Council England champions, develops and invests in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people's lives. They support a range of activities across the arts, museums and libraries – from theatre to digital art, reading to dance, music to literature, and crafts to collections. They believe that art and culture make life better, helps to build diverse communities and improves our quality of life. Great art and culture can inspire our education system, boost the economy and give the nation international standing.

They invest public money in great art and culture for everyone, everywhere. They fund major organisations that serve the whole nation as well as, many smaller companies, individual artists and arts-related projects. Their work is underpinned by the mission of great art and culture for everyone.

Another important part of their work is advocating the value of arts and culture. They bring artists together so that their voice can be heard; They champion the role art plays in our lives and They support new ways of thinking about the arts and their potential.
