We launch our updated strategy: Great art and culture for everyone

  • Date: 30 October 2013
  • Area: National

Today we are launching a refreshed version of our 10-year strategy, Great art and culture for everyone. The purpose of this update is to bring together our remit for the arts with that for museums and libraries for the first time. 

Watch: our animated film introducing our updated strategy

The following five goals are at the heart of our strategy:

Goal 1: Excellence is thriving and celebrated in the arts, museums and libraries

Goal 2: Everyone has the opportunity to experience and to be inspired by the arts, museums and libraries

Goal 3: The arts, museums and libraries are resilient and environmentally sustainable

Goal 4: The leadership and workforce in the arts, museums and libraries are diverse and appropriately skilled

Goal 5: Every child and young person has the opportunity to experience the richness of the arts, museums and libraries

The refreshed framework aims to be clearer about what success looks like, and how we will know whether we're achieving our mission of Great art and culture for everyone

Alan Davey, Chief Executive, Arts Council England, said:
'Great art and culture for everyone brings together our plans for the arts, museums and libraries in one clear and cohesive document for the first time. This, alongside the markers for success highlighted in the framework, will help us and the wider arts and culture sector demonstrate the extraordinary work they do to create a thriving, vibrant cultural landscape for the people of England.'
