Priorities and Perceptions:
Funding for the Arts and Humanities in an International Context

There can be little doubt that the 21st century so far has been a challenging time for the branch of human knowledge and endeavour known as the ‘arts and humanities’ (also variously known as the liberal arts or the arts and social sciences).

Why has this been the case? It seems the arts and humanities, generally defined as ‘academic disciplines that study human culture’ (e.g. languages, literature, philosophy, history and musicology), have been the victim of events such as the financial and economic crisis which impacted the globe in the late 2000s.

This paper examines the consequences of these events for arts and humanities funding and also includes examples of the types of arts funders and funding programmes currently available.
