Memorandums of understanding

British Council

An initial Memorandum of Understanding was agreed between Arts Council England and the British Council in 2009, which expired on 31 March 2012. It was informed by the McMaster Review, which exhorted Arts Council England and the British Council with the Department of Culture, Media and Sport to:

“work together to investigate and implement an international strategy that stimulates greater international exchange, brings the best of world culture here and takes the best of our culture to the world”.

Arts Council England and British Council are planning to work together on a number of projects in the future and have agreed to renew their collaboration. Download a copy of the memorandum here.
