Involvement with arts and culture is crucial to imagination, self-expression and creativity in young people
Together with our five goals we also have additional areas of focus to help us in the work we do with the arts and cultural sector. Our plan identifies the key areas where our support makes a real difference.
Our support isn’t simply financial. Beyond funding we have a development role, which means we give expert advice and promote partnership. Through this we hope to develop a thriving arts ecology that offers everybody the chance to enjoy, participate and create.
