ADUK is one of the largest national organisations representing the interests of those working in arts development for local communities. We are a registered charity with a membership representing nearly 400 organisations and individuals working in the arts and communities. Our strap-line is working locally, delivering nationally. We provide an effective networking and professional development service to our members, advocate and influence policy makers and funders, and have a key role in training, developing and representing our profession regionally and nationally. Organisational membership is open to all cultural organisations and local authorities (including organisations providing a contracted out local authority arts service) in the UK. Arts Development UK also offers personal membership to a growing number of individual consultants and artists and others working in related cultural professions.
Our Vision & Mission
Our aim is the universal provision of high quality, effective local arts services that meet and reflect local needs and issues. Arts Development UK’s vision is to ensure that the arts thrive in all our communities, meeting local needs, challenges and ambitions. Our mission is to equip our members to make this happen.
