Culture, the arts and creative industries are vital to economic prosperity and social reform. Too often, culture is overlooked by policy-makers as they seek, wrongly, to achieve short-term fixes to long-term challenges. We believe that recognising and revitalising cultural identity must be central to Government’s vision for the future.
Culture is community, because it is part of all of us. It defines both person and place. It shapes our identity both individually and collectively. Yet this understanding of culture can be lost in public policy, despite the fact that our country still faces significant challenges of inequality and social fragmentation.
Culture is also creativity. The UK’s creative sector is the largest in the European Union, and in terms of GDP, the largest in the world. From our curators and directors to our publishers and designers, Britain is rightly recognised as an international leader in the creative industries. We believe that such leadership should be reinforced and advanced, particularly as we exit from the EU and find our feet on the world stage.
Culture is economy. It is more than museums, galleries and film. Sole traders and small businesses represent the majority of this market, fuelling entrepreneurialism and local economic growth. As this Government sets out its new Industrial Strategy, we believe that our designers and makers must beat its heart.
