Our work in arts creates new relationships between artists, organisations and audiences to develop stronger creative sectors around the world. We help artists to break new ground, support creativity and innovation, increase capacity by building skills to support livelihoods and cultural enterprise, extend safe spaces for creative exchange and contribute to research and policy. Through our extensive and diverse networks in the UK and across the world we create new opportunities and lasting connections.
Arts and culture, like other sectors of Afghan life, have been severely damaged by decades of war. The British Council is committed to helping revive and promote Afghan culture.
