      • The Arts Office will often wish to mirror the "good practice" and leadership of the Art Council and in some cases the National Resource agencies
      • Artists, one of the main concerns from a personal point of view is the position of the practitioner in this process of policy formation.
      • The individual artist - tends by the nature of their practice to not be well briefed/ active on policy processes.
      •   They often don't take an active role in forming or informing policy at a local level.  They are central to forming a relevant and vibrant cultural environment

        • The Libraries,
        • Community and Enterprise Dept,
        • Culture and Community dept
        • sports, Irish, heritage, conservation, events offices
        • The plans are / should have been feeding or inter into different departments.  
        • Planning should also be feeding into wider policy plans, and special policy committee and within the other Council committees and boards
      • This arts and cultural policy work is seen to support a wider quality of life and add to the social, cultural and economic development of the county
    • Producing Arts Plans  - these are usually for a 3-5 year term
      • These plans tend to be general - setting an overall context for the development of art in the county
        • Local Level:
        • Area development plans, Corporate Plan, customer service charters, youth policies, Irish Language policy, other existing policy documents eg Heritage place, town or rural development plans, the charters and plans of other key county stakeholders
        • National Level: The plans are usually drawn up taking into account National Policy‘s , such as the National Spatial plan, the national development plan, departmental plans – Environment , Health, Children and Young People.
        • Arts Plans aspire to set standards in good practice, ensure a set of values and aspirations that give them enough scope to work easily within - so there is wriggle room but a general sense of the direction
    • How are the Arts Offices funded
      • The funding is struck on an annual basis only - making it difficult to manage budgets,
      • arts and culture are still seen as additional to the essential services of the LA
      • The arts services now also are "competing" with other local resources in the County such as theatres and arts centers Their concerns must be taken into account when developing a county policy
      • Through - the estimates process - when budgets are struck at a local level in September/ October annually.   Through revenue funding in the arts council
      • Other money can be raised through partnerships, sponsorships, once of funded projects - eg commissions or special project awards through the arts council
      • Some staff positions are funded through - The Arts Council and
      • Some public art positions are funded through the scheme itself
