As part of Arts Council England's on-going drive to become a more open, transparent and accountable public body, we are launching a series of online live chats with key representatives from our organisation.

The opportunity to chat in real-time will enable our audience to find out more about what we do, gain a further insight into how we spend public money and learn more about the impact and value of public funding of the arts.

Please note, live chat requires you to have both Flash and JavaScript enabled on your computer. If you are having problems accessing live chat, please email us on with the details.

When taking part in our live chats we ask that you abide by our rules of engagement.
