Cultural organisations are being urged to help shape Arts Council England’s next 10-year strategy.

ACE will publish its new strategy in 2019, setting out its vision and objectives for 2020 to 2030.

Arts companies, as well as individuals, are invited to submit their thoughts on how the arts scene in England should look in the future and what ACE can do to make that happen.

The consultation will run for 12 weeks, and will look at a range of areas, including how publicly funded arts and culture can become more “open, accessible and diverse” and what impact leaving the EU may have on the arts.

ACE chief executive Darren Henley said: “This is a very exciting time for all of us, an opportunity for us to contribute to a visionary piece of work that will influence the direction of the arts, museums and libraries in England for many years to come.”
