Arts

Through our work in Arts we find new ways of connecting with and understanding each other to develop stronger creative sectors around the world. Our expert team in the UK and around the world works to five broad aims: to share UK arts with the world; to foster collaborations and networks; to build capacity in creative sectors; to foster social change; and to support the shaping of policy and research. This cultural exchange helps create modern and vibrant creative sectors, building connections, trust and opportunity. It can also help to bring together divided communities and people affected by conflict.

 

Our global Arts programmes include cultural seasons and festivals in countries around the world, supporting skills building and entrepreneurship, touring exhibitions of the UK’s leading artists and designers, film festivals, book fairs, and dance, music and theatre performances and exchanges.
