In July 2007 James Purnell, the Secretary of State for Culture, asked Sir Brian McMaster, former Director of the Edinburgh International Festival, to undertake a review to report on: * How the system of public sector support for the arts can encourage excellence, risk-taking and innovation * How artistic excellence can encourage wider and deeper engagement with the arts by audiences * How to establish a light touch and non-bureaucratic method to judge the quality of the arts in the future The review involved artists, directors, curators, producers and administrators from across the country, and from across a wide variety of art forms. Sir Brian was supported by Nicola Thorold and staff from DCMS and Arts Council England. A public consultation ran from 1 - 30 November 2007, the findings of which helped inform Sir Brian's thinking ahead of his final report to the Secretary of State.
