Arts Council England champions, develops and invests in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people's lives. We 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.
Between 2010 and 2015, we will invest £1.9 billion of public money from government and an estimated £1.1 billion from the National Lottery in arts and culture to help create experiences for as many people as possible across the country.
What will 14p buy you these days?
A single dishwasher tablet; a 1-minute mobile phone call or one tenth of a litre of petrol?
But 14p can go a long way. This is the amount that each person in England contributes per week via the Arts Council to investment in arts and culture. It benefits all of us by making our lives richer, bringing communities together and helping drive economic growth. So what do you get for your money?
