The Cultural Commissioning Programme ( works with the arts and cultural sector, commissioners and policy makers to strengthen commissioning of arts and culture, to deliver better outcomes for people and communities. We have collated a wide range of resources to support this, including:

  • Understanding the opportunities to commission arts and cultural providers to deliver outcomes
  • Getting to grips with practicalities:
  • partnering with others
  • finding who to talk to locally
  • finding local tenders
  • measuring impact
  • Sourcing evidence to show the value of arts and cultural provision
  • Understanding the national policy context
  • Inspiring projects and case studies
