The Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys TD, has begun a nationwide conversation on the development of Ireland’s first ever national cultural policy, beginning with the release of a Discussion Document and consultation process which will inform the development of ‘Culture 2025’, which aims to set high level aims for the arts and culture sector over the next decade. Business to Arts was part of a colloquium of cultural stakeholders, that informed the Discussion Paper, which is prepared and published by the Department.

A series of regional meetings will be held over the next two months to facilitate debate and discussion amongst stakeholders and interested parties in the arts and cultural sector. It is envisaged the final policy will be published in early 2016.

“If we want to protect and promote our unique and varied culture, and encourage new cultural forms to flourish, we need to aim high. Culture 2025 will be Ireland’s first ever national cultural policy. It will set out high level aims for the next decade, and reflect the important role that culture plays in our lives. Through this discussion document we are posing a series of questions about how resources should be prioritised, how artists and creative workers should be supported, how access to culture can be improved in disadvantaged areas, and many other issues. This is the first time that everyone will have an opportunity to make their views known about why our culture is so important and what we want to achieve over the next decade.”
