From Tuesday 5 November - Thursday 7 November 2013 the Arts Council hosted briefing sessions for its National portfolio organisations and Major partner museums. The sessions took place across the Arts Council's five areas, and were the latest in a series of business updates it provides these organisations. 

The briefings covered three key themes:

  • in January 2014 we open applications to our next round of National portfolio and Major partner museum funding, and this briefing has shared a level of detail around this - from timescales to our thinking behind this process
  • in October 2013 we launched our updated mission and strategy: Great art and culture for everyone; we also provided an update on this work 
  • the presentation also provides an update on our strategic funding, along with how we are continuing to make the case for public investment in arts and culture

Explore and share our refreshed strategy and advocacy toolkit.
