Socially engaged culture

Arts Council England has awarded Battersea Arts Centre £360,000 to run a national network of interdisciplinary cultural organisations to co-create and disseminate knowledge on how to distribute world-class, socially-engaged, artistic projects.

The work will be focused away from London and led by producers who are committed to using arts and culture to drive social change. Battersea Arts Centre will develop practical, tested solutions, to enable a step-change in the wider arts sector and ensure excellent art is relevant to communities across the country.
