Arts Council England delivery plan highlights health and wellbeing

ACE’s new delivery plan  2021 – 2024 highlights health and wellbeing

The plan sets out ways in which its grantees

“Will need to change so that we better support communities around the country to recover from the pandemic, rebuild their economic prosperity, and strengthen their members’ long-term health, wellbeing and happiness.”

ACE will also be working closely with the Government on delivering its levelling up agenda. This will include working collaboratively with other arm’s-length bodies to support places to respond to government place-based funds, like the Stronger Towns Fund, and ensure that they are able to make best use of resources to support the development of cultural infrastructure.

Through this Delivery Plan ACE will help open up access to the cultural sector, improve the geographical reach of our funding and ensure that more people, regardless of their socio-economic background, will benefit from high-quality, publicly-funded culture. They will increase our support for creativity and culture in over 50 named places across the country over the next three years. They will also invest in another round of our Creative People and Places programme, which for a decade has been providing opportunities for communities who have had least access to publicly-funded culture to shape a high-quality local cultural offer. ACE will ensure that young people have fair access to a wide-ranging, high-quality creative and cultural offer and our support for the development of children and young people’s creativity will help them develop the skills they need for the future.

ACE will support cultural organisations to develop more resilient and dynamic business models and innovate through new partnerships with technology companies, the commercial creative industries and more health care and education providers.
