Review of the Arts and Communities Programme, Arts Council England

Wavehill Director Andy Parkinson completed a review of the Arts and Communities programme, which was an initiative by Arts Council England and the Department for Communities and Local Government which aimed to support and showcase good practice in arts and culture that brings communities together by increasing participation, building common ground and promoting stronger and more integrated communities.

The programme provided funding to the localities of Birmingham, Bradford, Bristol and Burnley. The review report showcases the progress and achievements of the activity delivered through the programme and considers the learning from the different approaches to programme delivery in each locality. The report also considers the significance of the role of local authorities in the delivery of arts and cultural programmes which build common ground within communities. The report includes a series of case studies, tips and guidance to support the development of future programmes working to achieve similar aims.
