Publicat: 09 Ian 2006 00:00

Visiting Arts is the national agency sustaining the flow of international arts into the UK and strengthening intercultural understanding through the arts. Our work links England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland with countries prioritised by our Board. We develop cultural links, strengthen the knowledge and understanding of audiences about world arts and culture, build positive cultural relations and exchange, and foster mutually beneficial arts contacts at community, local, regional, national, and institutional levels. Visiting Arts activities include advice, consultancy, information, online cultural profiles and knowledge resources, networking opportunities, partnership building, professional development, project funding, publications, and we cover a wide range of art forms. Visiting Arts is an independent educational charity (registered in England as a charity number 1085506) jointly funded by the Arts Council of England, the Scottish Arts Council, the Arts Council of Wales, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, and the British Council.
