Arts Council Strategic Overview

12th November 2010 by Maura McHugh

The Arts Council has issued a new document, Developing the Arts in Ireland, the Arts Council Strategic Overview 2011-2013.

Developing the Arts in Ireland – Arts Council Strategic Overview 2011-2013 is published in a spirit of confidence, tempered by the realism required to plan and provide for the arts at a time of significant difficulty in the public finances. It presents our strategic approach, describing a dual focus on supporting artists and arts organisations and on seeking to increase public engagement and participation in the arts. To these ends, during 2011 – 2013 the council will provide financial support; act in partnership; provide information and expert advice on the arts; and advocate for the arts. In doing so, we will strive to maintain and develop balanced and sustainable arts provision throughout the country.
