To mark the 30th anniversary of the birth of the web, the British Council presents a global season looking at the impact of this world-changing invention on every aspect of our lives. Anyone//Anywhere celebrates how the web has benefited society but also raises questions about its future. As part of this season we explore how technology has changed our relationship to culture, and question what the next 30 years might hold for the creative industries.
Our work in arts
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.
