In November 2013 the Arts Council issued a Strategic Statement (PDF, 0.22 MB) setting out its position for the immediate term and outlining the four key goals and twelve objectives which will guide its actions and decisions for the next period. The timeframe for this strategic approach is not defined as yet. This is because during 2014 the Arts Council is undertaking a strategic review of its work, of how currently it addresses its remit, and of the challenges and opportunities arising from a time of significant social and technological change as well as of severe contraction in the Council’s own resources from government.
Details of that strategic review are available elsewhere on the Arts Council’s website.
