Five-year strategic plan for the Arts in Northern Ireland 2019-2024

Ambitions for the Arts (2013-2018), a five year strategy by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, set out our goals to be a champion for the arts and to promote access to the arts for all. Our vision was and is to put the arts at the heart of our social, economic and creative life.

In the absence of an executive government in Northern Ireland, we have extended the current arts strategy to cover 2018-19.

We are currently consulting on the next five-year strategy for the arts, 2019-2024.
