The aim of this report is to showcase the progress and achievements of
the activity which has been delivered through the Arts and Communities programme and to consider the learning from the different approaches to programme delivery in each locality.
The report considers the significance of the role of local authorities in the delivery of arts and cultural programmes which build common ground within communities. The report includes a series of case studies, tips and guidance to support the development of future programmes working to achieve similar aims.

This report is not intended to provide an evaluation of the programme although it does draw on the learning outlined in the following localities’ respective evaluation reports:
Birmingham – Connecting Communities Through Culture programme
Bristol – Arts and Communities programme
Burnley – Mechanics at Home programme.
Although not having a specific health focus, ‘Yusuf Can’t Talk’ shows how a new organisation that supports Somali mothers of autistic children in Bristol, raises awareness of autism within the Somali community (p.13).
