Welcome to the Arts Council press office
Arts Council England is the national development agency for the arts in England, distributing public money from Government and the National Lottery.
The virtual press office is designed for journalists to find press releases, answer questions, download photos & resources and find background information.
Some of the site is available to everyone. Journalists can sign up for a press pass to see embargoed or exclusive information, receive our latest news by email and download high res images and resources.
There is an area of the website for each of the Arts Council’s nine regions which you can select from the map on the right or from the drop down box on the right.
