On Monday I was in London for a meeting of the Arts Council England ‘Amateur Arts Partnership Development Programme’ steering group. This group, which includes representatives of ACE, DCMS, Voluntary Arts and the Local Government Association, is following up the recommendations and conclusions of the DCMS/ACE ‘Our Creative Talent’ research into the voluntary and amateur arts in England. In a packed agenda we discussed the 2010 programme of ACE Amateur Arts Forum meetings, involving the voluntary arts sector in the ACE ‘Great Art for Everyone’ consultation, the updating of the DCMS ‘Guide to Arts Funding’, opportunities for the voluntary arts sector in relation to the UK City of Culture and much more. The steering group is a great way of linking together a wide range of issues and initiatives and ensuring that the voluntary arts are properly considered and involved.
