Stephen Lightbown and Natalie Adams join South West Area Council

Arts Council England yesterday announced two new appointments to its South West Area Council, which plays a crucial role in both local and national decision-making.

Area Council members are drawn from different roles across and beyond the arts and culture sector. They include an array of people from the sector and local government including creative practitioners, arts administrators and local authority representatives. Members use their expertise and grassroots knowledge of local issues to help us create and implement our strategy, Let’s Create. 

The South West Area Council board, which is chaired by Helen Birchenough and made up of fifteen members, works to ensure that Arts Council develop creative talent and the creative and cultural ecology in the area.  

Area and National Councils help us to ensure we invest public money effectively, and they are collectively responsible for making decisions on applications to our National Portfolio.

The two new South West Area Councillors that we are delighted to welcome to the South West Area in 2021 are Stephen Lightbown and Natalie Adams.
