The Government claims that BSF is the largest capital investment programme in schools in England for fifty years. Partnerships for Schools (PfS) is the government agency responsible for its delivery and has recently announced that every local authority must set up a mandatory Cultural Stakeholder Group responsible for advising on arts provision within BSF schools. As a result, the inclusion of public art within BSF is being promoted by PfS.

In response, ixia has prepared detailed guidance about public art and BSF. The seminar is based on the guidance and will provide accurate information about current policy and practice and give advice on how to create opportunities for public art within BSF.
