DCAL Consultation on Arts and Culture Strategy 2016-2026

Closing date for responses: 12 February 2016

DCAL’s Draft Arts and Culture Strategy 2016-206, which aims to be the first overarching and cross-departmental strategy, is currently open for consultation on how arts and culture can best promote equality and tackle poverty and social exclusion: making culture and arts available to everyone.

As we are nearing the close of the public consultation period, TheatreNI is strongly encouraging our members and those interested in arts and culture in Northern Ireland to respond.

Some forthcoming events to support individual and groups to develop their responses are as follows:

Arts Matter NI is holding a consultation meeting at Oh Yeah Music Centre on Gordon Street, Belfast, on Friday 29th January 2pm. Read more

Community Arts Partnership are hosting an open forum to discuss the consultation on the 1 Feburary (1.30pm-4.30pm) at CAP’s offices, 3-5 Commercial Court, Belfast. Read more

You can find the consultation document and how to submit your response on DCAL’s website.
