Everyone has the opportunity to experience and to be inspired by the arts, museums and libraries
We want to invest in artists and arts and cultural organisations that ensure their high-quality work reaches large and diverse audiences. This will involve supporting organisations to create, catalogue and archive digital content; working with the library network to increase access to arts and culture; and increasing the geographical reach of arts and culture through funding the touring of work.
We will also invest in long-term collaborations between local communities, arts and cultural organisations, local authorities and the private sector to encourage inspirational culture programmes, particularly in places where engagement is low.
What will success look like?
- more people have the opportunity to experience and participate in great art, museums and libraries
- the number and range of people experiencing great art, museums and libraries has increased
- engagement levels have increased among those currently least engaged in arts and culture
- there is a demonstrable increase in the depth and quality of people’s cultural experience
