The future role and organisation of local government: arts, local authorities and the future

Leisure Working Paper, Institute of Local Government Studies, University of Birmingham (4/5): 11

The future role and organisation of local government: arts, local authorities and the future

The future of local authorities in the development of performing and visual arts in the UK is seen as: (1) manning for some years to come the crumbling defences of the 1950s and 1960s arts, which will only survive in the end to the extent that the public wills them to; (2) a greater role in the setting up and support of arts centres; (3) a general stress on participation including a growing interest in crafts; (4) outreach work in the arts to run parallel to action support; (5) a growing interest in publicly accessible art such as mural painting; and (6) support for people who wish to learn or improve skills at non professional levels.
