Arts Council Corporate Plan

The Arts Council’s new corporate plan includes a number of changes to increase support for socially engaged arts practice and a specific change to the Creative People and Places programme to incorporate arts and health activity. This is accompanied by £17m new investment in the programme.

The corporate plan sets out the organisation’s activity over the next two years. It offers a fresh focus on health saying: “We will develop a coherent and strategic approach to investment, seeking partnerships with major stakeholders in health and criminal justice and the support of specialist cultural organisations working in these sectors to raise quality, broaden delivery and attract new revenue streams.”
