Join the consultation for ACE's ten-year strategy

The Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance is calling for responses to Arts Council England's proposed ten-year strategy from its membership and beyond.

We would like to celebrate ACE's increasing acknowledgement of work in relation to health and wellbeing and to call for its greater integration across the document. Other key points include:

  • seeking clarity on the relationship between the framework's aspirations and future funding structures
  • noting the lack of reference to adults and in particular older adults
  • challenging the lack of emphasis given to climate change and environmental crisis.

The Alliance is preparing a guidance document, which you can use when you to submit your own responses.

As well as encourging as many individual submissions as possible, this guidance will ultimately become a joint response from the Alliance and its strategic partners.

Please find the consultation document Shaping the Next Ten Years and the Alliance's draft guidance attached here. Please note that this is a developing document - as we consult our partners it may change, and we will upload updated versions to this site as they become available.

The consultation process is open until 2 January 2018.
