Local Authority Arts Funding

Meeting the funding challenge

This guidance note, Meeting the funding challenge, is addressed to local authority members and officers.

Meeting the funding challenge

You might be passionate about the arts, but worried about how you can sustain activity at a time of budget cuts. Alternatively, you might be unsure of the benefits of investing in the arts but willing to consider the evidence.

Either way this guidance note will, we hope, help you.

We want to inspire you to think about the benefits that the arts can bring to your community, and the leadership role that you can play in helping to improve the quality of life and well-being of your fellow citizens.

This note rehearses, briefly, some of the arguments in favour of investment in the arts. It also points you in the direction of practical information and advice that will help you to consider cost effective ways of providing an arts service in your locality.
