On Tuesday I was in London to take part in the first meeting of the Cultural Commissioning Programme Advisory Group. The Cultural Commissioning Programme is a three year programme, finishing in June 2016, funded by £895k from Arts Council England and being delivered by a partnership between the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, New Philanthropy Capital, the New Economics Foundation and Mission, Models, Money. In a changing landscape for public service delivery, with new markets developing, arts organisations provide high quality services that contribute to public service outcomes but few are engaged with public service commissioning. The programme will explore how arts organisations can better engage with commissioning in order to develop better public service outcomes, diversifying income and users for arts organisations and ensuring high quality arts work in a public service context. The Programme Advisory Group is chaired by Lord Michael Bichard and includes representatives of charitable trusts, local authorities, arts organisations, infrastructure bodies and corporate funders. On Tuesday we discussed the initial findings from the scoping phase of the programme and agreed the terms of reference for the Advisory Group.
