Event description

Description

Carole Stewart, Assistant Director Arts Heritage and Libraries, London Borough of Ealing

Local government in England invests more in the arts than the Arts Council. The November 2015 comprehensive spending review will see funding to local government fall by a further 24%. Councils are having to make difficult decisions about what services they continue to maintain and to what level. The arts are not statutory services, so on what basis can they be sustained? How is local government support for the arts changing? What will the future look like? Carole will talk through the changes and the ways in which councils are responding to the choices in funding and sustainability for the arts.

Carole Stewart’s 20 years’ experience comes from working across and developing Cultural Strategies for the three London Boroughs of Hackney, Harrow and Ealing, managing funding programmes and delivering arts services. Carole has hands-on experience of the shift from direct delivery of services to contracting out and commissioning services from third party organisations. Her current projects include creating new single purpose vehicles to take on the management of the borough’s heritage, museums and galleries, commercialisation of library assets and leading on the client function for heritage capital programmes.
