Cultural Commissioning Programme – bridging the gap between arts & cultural organisations & public service commissioners

Cultural-Commissioning-Programme_with-straplineThe Cultural Commissioning Programme will help arts and cultural organisations engage in public sector commissioning and will also work with public service commissioners to develop awareness of the potential for arts and culture to deliver their outcomes.  Led by NCVO, with NPC, nef, MMM, this is an Arts Council England funded project. From April 2014, the programme will deliver a range of activities to promote learning and understanding, and to help secure sustainability of the initiative.  These include:

  • A structured learning programme for the arts, museums and libraries sectors
  • Commissioner support to encourage best practice in commissioning arts and culture, and to improve the quality of commissioning
  • Events and conferences
  • Development of website resources, guidance and case studies, including an evidence library on impact
  • Development of social impact networks
  • Advocacy for the work amongst policy makers and within current affairs initiatives.
