On Tuesday afternoon I was at Arts Council England in London for a meeting of the Arts Nation External Advisory Group. In our first meeting since the Comprehensive Spending Review we looked at the implications of funding cuts on ACE’s public engagement work, the progress of the Arts Nation pilot projects and the ambitions to increase and widen engagement in the arts within ACE’s new 10-year strategy ‘Achieving Great Art for Everyone’. The External Advisory Group has proved very valuable in bringing together a number of ACE’s regular funded organisations and encouraging us to look at how we might work more closely together to promote engagement in the arts.
