Den 16. maj 2012 i Belfast lancerede Nordirlands Kunstråd for første gang nogensinde en ‘interkulturel kunst strategi’ for Nordirland.


Kunstrådets strategi anerkender samfundets forandrede udseende i Nordirland og dets stigende kulturelle mangfoldighed. Strategien markerer behovet for at fremme kulturel pluralisme, udvikle gode relationer og bekæmpe racisme inden for og imellem lokalsamfund og deres kulturer. Dokumentet har seks strategiske temaer, som er et bidrag til et program for regeringen: Intercultural Engagement; Developing the Minority Ethnic Arts infrastructure; using the arts to develop Community Cohesion; using the arts to increase awareness of Diversity, and developing programmes that use the arts to develop Good Relations and as a vehicle to tackle Racism.

Kunstrådet meddelte også, at den agter at indføre et nyt finansieringsprogram til efteråret, der vil koncentrere sig om at styrke de etniske mindretals kunst-infrastruktur i hele Nordirland.

Executive Summary
Introduction
This intercultural arts strategy has been prepared in recognition of the priorities set out in the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s (ACNI) five year strategy, Creative Connections for the period from 2007-2012. Under Theme 3 (Growing Audiences and Increasing Participation) the strategy sets out how the Arts Council will seek to foster the expression of cultural pluralism; build dialogue and promote understanding, through interchanges within and between communities and their cultures.
The Arts Council has developed a number of artform and specialist policies. These policies address how each of the four themes within the five year strategy are implemented through the work of the Arts Council. Though not confined to the Community Arts practice, the Community Arts Policy articulates aspects of multiculturalism:
“Northern Ireland society faces the challenge of creating a shared future based on respect, tolerance, peace and equality. Community Arts plays an important role in understanding the variety of our own identities, celebrating the multiculturalism that exists in Northern Ireland.”
It is within this broad context that the Arts Council has developed a wider, cross cutting Intercultural Arts strategy and dedicated Action Plan.
