The arts and culture flourish in Devon, not only enriching the lives of its citizens, but also making a major contribution to the local economy. We recognise the value of the arts and culture to the people of Devon and through many of our services working with children and adults we aim to foster an appreciation for, and to encourage participation in, artistic and creative activity. We must continue to promote excellence in the arts and at the same time encourage more people to enjoy the benefits of artistic endeavour and appreciation.
The Council has awarded two commissions for programmes of arts activity across the county from April 2013 to March 2016. You can find more about this at Commissions for arts activity.
Exeter Library has formed a group of Cultural Associates as part of its strategy for development. You can find more about this at Cultural Associates for Exeter Library.
Devon Libraries and the Burton Art Gallery and Museum have a joint ambition to deliver an integrated cultural offer in Bideford. We are seeking your views through an online survey which is open until Friday 20 February 2015. You can find more about this at Building Bideford's Cultural Offer.
