Our work in the Arts and the Creative Industries

What we do

Arts is a cornerstone of the British Council’s mission to create a friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and the wider world. We find new ways of connecting with and understanding each other through the arts, to develop stronger creative sectors around the world that are better connected with the UK.

As a cultural relations organisation, we deliver arts programmes with the aim of building a stronger relationship between the UK and Thailand, facilitating artistic exchanges and collaborations between the two countries, which support the building of Thailand’s creative economy.

In 2017-2020 our key work strands are Craft and Design and Creative Cities.
