This first evidence session will consider the scope, scale and remit of the Council and how it makes its funding decisions. Evidence will be taken from a former Chair of the Arts Council and the three authors of a recent report, “Rebalancing our Cultural Capital”. The latter looked at the geographical distribution of funding for the arts.
