Our mission at the Arts Council is Great art and culture for everyone. We work hard to achieve this by championing, developing and investing in arts and cultural experiences that enrich people's lives. We have a 10-year strategic framework, running from 2010-2020; and at the heart of this we have five goals, all there to help us meet our mission. In October 2013 we released the second edition of this publication - you can download the publication (PDF) or find out more by exploring this page.
