What is the role of Arts Group?
Our global arts team works with the best of British creative talent to develop innovative, high-quality events and collaborations that link thousands of artists and cultural institutions around the world, drawing them into a closer relationship with the UK.
This website cannot cover all the projects and activities we are involved in, though a good place to start for an overview of our current work is our Arts homepage. You can also find out about many of our projects on the Arts Projects page. These examples of our work give a sense of how our arts and creative economy work relates to our cultural relations aims.
