During the 1985/86 restructuring of the Arts Council, Combined Arts became a separate unit within the Arts Division. It was disbanded in 1988, with the Multidisciplinary and Arts Centres Committee taking on an advisory role for this area until the formation of a new Combined Arts Unit within the new Arts Development Division during 1991. Sally Stote was the director of the Combined Arts Unit from 1992.
