At Arts Professional we commission, research and write content for people with a professional interest in the arts sector to deliver a quality news and information service. Our aim is to help you get the most out of your professional practice. How do we do this?

Our editorial

  • We cover stories that are too specialist for the national newspapers, but important to people working in the arts
  • We investigate what’s going on in the sector, holding public bodies to account
  • We keep the sector up to date with changes in national and local government policy
  • We provide a forum for opinion and comment on key issues affecting the sector
  • We update the sector on developments in professional practice such as HR, marketing, law and digital
  • We share good practice by giving arts professionals a platform to write about their projects and learning
  • We create a space for the sector to promote itself, its jobs and its activities to other arts professionals

Our values

  • Integrity: We’re honest, serious-minded and balanced.
  • Curiosity: We ask questions, challenge and probe to get the facts.
  • Independence: We stand up for what we believe in and aren’t afraid to raise the issues that others can’t – or don’t.
  • Topicality: We’re about what’s going on now, across the arts and beyond, but fashion and trends never sidetrack us.
  • Collaborative: We welcome contributions from diverse voices across the sector as well as from policymakers and academics with an interest in the sector.
