The Brighton & Hove Arts & Creative Industries Commission is independent from the council. It's a partnership made up of prominent members from the arts and creative industries in the city

Despite its independence the commission has strong links with the city council and is one of Brighton & Hove's main partnerships. Commissioners give their time and expertise free of charge. 

The Brighton & Hove Arts Commission is involved in numerous activities. It develops policy, raises funds, provides advice and delivers programmes. They also work with the Arts & Cultural Projects Team on events, including White Night and The Children’s Festival.
