Focuses on organisations responsible for presentation of contemporary visual arts to audiences, and the structures and processes of policy making, funding and advocacy that impact on them. The thrust of the policy recommendations is to increase common purpose across the wider visual arts and heritage sectors, to find ways to re-integrate the presentation of new art and old, and to ensure that capital assets and human and financial resources are used effectively and efficiently. Details nine policy recommendations and thirty-four action points to be achieved through cross-sectoral partnerships strengthened by formal memoranda of understanding, regional development strategies and joint programmes.
