Arts Council England works to get great art to everyone by championing, developing and investing in artistic experiences that enrich people’s lives.
As the national development agency for the arts, we support a range of artistic activities from theatre to music, literature to dance, photography to digital art, carnival to crafts.
Great art inspires us, brings us together and teaches us about ourselves and the world around us. In short, it makes life better.
Between 2008 and 2011 we’ll invest in excess of £1.6 billion of public money from the government and the National Lottery to create these experiences for as many people as possible across the country.

We use a contemporary definition of the arts and are open to new trends in emerging - and sometimes challenging - arts practice. We recognize that each artform has its own distinctive qualities and each, to some extent, represents a distinct industry with its own economy. We also recognize artists’ desire to work across boundaries. That’s why we have policies for individual artforms as well as for combined arts and interdisciplinary arts.
Our job is to keep art on the agenda, to trust artists and to support a climate in which they can thrive. The arts policies will improve the framework by which we can do that.
