The aim of the scheme is to enable organisations to fulfil their artistic potential and offer creative experiences of the highest possible quality.

§ Audience development.
§ Business enterprise and organisational development.
§ Programme support for venues and galleries.
§ Creating or commissioning for production or touring.
§ Research and development.
§ Training, mentoring and continuing professional development (CPD).
