Have your say about Investment Principles at Arts Council England

As part of the delivery of our strategy for 2020-2030, Let’s Create, we’ve partnered with Lancaster University’s Arts and Creativity unit for experimentation, exploration, and enquiry team (LACE3) who will be exploring how the Investment Principles are informing the cultural sector’s thinking and practice.

They want to hear from individuals and organisations who interact with the Arts Council, be it in our capacity as a funder or in our development agency role.

Take part

As part of this project, LACE3 are running a series of six workshops to get direct input from the sector, and we’re supporting them to find volunteers.

These workshops are independent of the Arts Council, and will take place during April and May 2022. They are being offered as online or in-person workshops lasting 3 hours on the following dates:


12 April, in-person, London (Sadler’s Wells), 10:00 – 13:00
21 April, in-person, Preston (UCLAN), 13:00 – 16:00
25 April, online (Zoom), 14:30 – 17:30
28 April, online (Zoom), 12:00 – 15:00
10 May, in-person, Birmingham (Arts Council offices), 10:00 – 13:00
17 May, online (Zoom), 10:00 – 13:00
