Consultation Responses

Arts and culture intersect with many areas of public policy, from education and learning to the creative industries and growth.  As the lead development agency for arts and culture, we are proactive in ensuring that government and other public bodies understand our sector, and that our policy accurately reflects the changing external context.

Our recent responses can be found below. If you have any comments or would like to invite us to respond to a consultation, please contact Ben Brown: Policy and Research Officer.
