Arts Development UK Local Authority Arts Spending Survey

Arts Development UK is in the process of collating findings from our most recent local authority arts spending survey and the results should be by the end of May 2011. We would like to thank the 104 local authorities that took part in the survey, making it one of our most comprehensive to date.  The survey reflects a critical time for local government, with budget cuts affecting local cultural services, and it is imperative that we maintain our intelligence on the financial situation for arts services. We have been collecting financial data the last 6 years, but 2011/12 will see our members face major challenges that we need to document and record.

The survey also records active partnerships and the contribution that arts make to the life of your communities. In this way we can work with our partners in demonstrating the worth of our sector and in advocating for future support.

It is vital that we achieve as complete a picture as possible of the challenges that you are facing. The survey intends to record success stories to give a balanced prospective of 2011/12. We have therefore sent the survey to both member and non-member authorities.
