Arts Council England, generally referred to as the Arts Council, is a national agency which, in its own words, “champions, develops and invests in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people’s lives.”

To pursue this mission, it supports a range of activities in England “across the arts, museums and libraries — from theater to digital art, reading to dance, music to literature, and crafts and collections.”
