Arts Council England peer review published

Arts Council England and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport have received a stern rebuke from the independent assessment body led by Genista McIntosh for allowing their relationship to deteriorate, creating a “climate of mistrust” that requires “urgent attention”.

The comments are contained in the so-called Peer Review report into the workings of the council, chaired by the baroness, who previously ran two of Britain’s leading flagship arts companies, the National Theatre and the Royal Opera House. It concludes that repairing the breakdown in communications between ACE and the DCMS following the 2004 Spending Review remains crucial if any progress is to be made in restructuring the council.
