The arts, museums and libraries are resilient and environmentally sustainable
We want to encourage and enable more private giving by helping organisations to build their fundraising capacity, supporting them to forge new partnerships and explore alternative sources of non-grant income. To achieve this goal, we will work closely with local government and with the British Council, UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and other partners to achieve our shared objectives for sustainable cultural provision across England that understands and reduces its environmental impact.
What will success look like?
- arts organisations, museums and libraries can demonstrate an ability to adapt to their external environment
- arts organisations and museums have increased the share of their income that comes from a wider range of contributed or earned income sources
- local authorities and other partners value the Arts Council’s development role in supporting arts organisations, museums and libraries to be more resilient
- the cultural sector embraces environmental sustainability and has reduced its carbon footprint
