There's a range of support, advice and opportunities available to our arts community, both from local and central government.
Our Arts and Cultural Services team are available to give advice and help to artists, arts organisations and the wider community. They also help foster partnerships between the artists and the wider community. They can also advise individuals and organisations involved in creative projects, including:
- funding for arts projects
- arts activity and resources available through the Council
- festivals, community events and art-related activities
- project development and resources
- funding and grants opportunities
- arts education and outreach
- audience development and promotion
- professional development and artist-in-residence programmes
- venues and exhibition spaces
- requests for proposals for public art projects.
