With publication of Arts Council England’s 10-year strategy for 2020-30 due for publication in February 2020, Sir Nicholas Serota, ACE chair, has been interviewed by The Guardian about the organisation’s priorities.
Serota said a priority in the strategy would be ‘to try to reach those people who are not participating. There are too many places that in order to see something of real quality you have to travel long distances.’
Helping artists early will be a priority. ‘It will be about giving more support to writers, artists, composers at an early stage in their career so that they can make a career and then flourish.’
