How to achieve great art for everyone? 

Arts Council England has opened a consultation on the future priorities for the arts:

"This consultation sets out our understanding of the current landscape, celebrates the success of the arts and identifies areas for development over the next ten years.

We are asking for your thoughts on the way forward. Your views will inform our long term strategic framework and our next set of investment decisions." 

You can take part in this consultation by visiting www.artscouncil.org.uk/consultation, from today. The consultation will end at midnight on 14 April 2010.

The outcome of this consultation will be the publication of a long term strategic framework in late 2010. This framework will inform the development of the Arts Council's next three year plan (2011 to 2014).

With regards to Turning Point Network this consultation represents a significant opportunity for the Visual Arts. By taking part we can to ensure the current strength, and potential for continued growth of the sector, is reflected in the framework. In turn , we can ensure that our work remains a priority for support beyond March 2011 when the Arts Council's current plan comes to an end.

Between now and the end of the consultation there will be a range of opportunities for people to attend and contribute to consultation events. Simon Zimmerman will be contacting Chairs and managers of the regional Visual Arts Strategy Groups to discuss the possibility of coordinating a series of sector specific conversations, to ensure our response is robust and joined up.
