Arts development in Dorset is an exemplar of excellent practice and dynamic cultural delivery, illustrated by the richness of the Maritime Mix programme delivered across 2012.

ArtReach is working with Dorset County Council and partners to help develop a structure to ensure continuing success, in the light of pressures on Local Authority budgets and changing times. The work includes a Feasibility Study to review the future of the Little Keep building in Dorchester (home to a number of key arts organisations) and exploration of options for future delivery of the County Arts Development Service.
