Arts Council England works to achieve great art & culture for everyone championing, developing and investing in art & culture to enrich people’s lives. Our mission for the next three years, ten years and beyond is clear and unequivocal. It is about great art and culture for everyone. This goes to the heart of what Arts Council England is for, and why John Maynard Keynes set up the Arts Council: 'to give courage, confidence and opportunity' to artists and their audiences. They need today, just as much as in 1946, that courage, confidence and opportunity. It is our duty to infuse the whole nation with it, and to do that we should have some of that courage and confidence for ourselves. Arts and culture are an important part of life in this country - something beyond economic well-being but just as important. When the arts achieve excellence they offer something to each individual that is hard to describe. This might be a challenge, conflict, insight, understanding, amusement, an intellectual or an emotional connection. It's unique for each person. This is what we are about - creating the conditions by which great art and culture can happen, and then making sure as many people as possible can engage with arts and culture, and discover what our England’s incredible creativity can do for them.
