The Arts Office works to support Hampshire County Council's Corporate Strategy, the Council's strategic objectives and priorities for improvement. Our work also contributes to the Council's Cultural Strategy which sums up all that is best about the county today and it sets out a strategy for maintaining and developing its culture.
Hampshire County Council takes seriously our commitment to supporting the voluntary and community sector and has set up the Hampshire Compact. The Compact sets out our aims to improve communication, understanding, collaboration, trust and respect between Hampshire County Council and the voluntary and community sector in the true spirit of partnership to the benefit of the people of Hampshire.
Decisions about funding and other significant Arts Office issues are made by the Executive Member and reports of these meetings are available online (these decisions were made by the Arts Panel before September 2001). Decisions on Culture, Communities and Rural Affairs Policy and Resources can also be found online.
