We are committed to getting more local people active in culture and improving the value of the sector to the local economy.

We do this by providing, developing and funding exciting and accessible high quality arts activities which involve residents and attract visitors. We work with arts organisations of all sizes across the city to ensure effective delivery of a high quality arts programme.

We are responsible for Arts Commissioning.  This is the development, assessment and monitoring of grants to arts organisations through revenue commissioning to Birmingham's major cultural organisations.  It also includes project commissioning via the ‘Culture on Our Doorstep’ and ‘Next Generation’ funding schemes.
