Arts Council Essential Guide

Arts Council England Offices, Bateman Street, Cambridge

Following on from their Arts, Museums and Libraries presentation, Hannah Lake, RM Museums and Lisa Elmer, RM Libraries have provided the update below alongside requesting your feedback for specific areas of work:

Our aim is towards a single vision and single cultural conversation, integrating museums and libraries to enable us to work with local partners to serve the public in a simpler and more connected way.  We know that each sector has its own distinctive skills and disciplines but we believe it is useful to explore the potential in the wider remit for everyone including artists, scholars, audiences and visitors.

What do you think are the opportunities of the single vision? Please send us your thoughts, ideas and examples of where cross-cultural working is already happening.  It would be great to have some examples of productive collaboration in the East and to also think about future projects that might benefit from Grants for the Arts.

On Tuesday 27 March Arts Council England launched an online conversation as part of Envisioning the library of the future – a programme of research and consultation that will help us to shape what libraries should be in the future and we’d like you to join the discussion. The blog will be updated regularly with guest posts from leading libraries professionals, plus researchers and commentators from other fields, and we would welcome your comment and input.  You can also help us by spreading the word to your networks – including via social media using the hashtag #acelibraries.  We look forward to hearing your views.
