Answer for Art Council London Executive Director

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Since the end of February the area responsibilities for London and the South East have been led by Laura Dyer. Given the success of this arrangement, the Arts Council has decided not to re-recruit to the role, and Laura Dyer will continue to have Executive responsibility and be a strong champion for London and the South East at the Arts Council Executive Board.
