Arts Council CEO outlines the next stages for cultural recovery

May 28th 2020

by Creative Quarter

Arts Council England CEO Darren Henley writes about what comes next for culture and creativity in England in a new blog.

Work News

“Now, the Arts Council is moving into a new phase of planning for the longer-term: to help our sector to find stability where possible, to reopen as and when it’s safe to do so, and ultimately to reset, as we consider how to realise the ambitions laid out in our new strategy, Let’s Create. The world that we emerge into when this crisis is finally over will inevitably look very different from the one into which our strategy was launched, and all of us will need to find new ways of operating within it. But I passionately believe that, in the wake of our experiences of Covid-19, Let’s Create’s fundamental commitment to creativity, culture and the collective power of communities will be more important than ever.”

“Over the next weeks, we will work to gather data and get answers to some key questions; we will produce a plan for the stabilisation and reset of our sector; and we will continue to engage with government to help inform their thinking as they develop plans to get the economy moving and to rebuild communities in villages, towns and cities across England. As always, we will do this in partnership with our stakeholders, and we will continue to listen carefully and closely to you in order to fully understand the challenges you’re grappling with as we develop this work.”
