Arts & Culture – Spring 2019
Curating creativity and platforming perspectives: ensuring diverse expression is at the heart of the creative industries
The creative industries in the UK are facing a unique and potentially transformative moment in history. In the face of challenges such as reduced public funding and a lessening focus in state education, it has never been more important for the sector’s leaders to ensure that voices from a broad range of backgrounds continue to have a platform from which to have their say.
While the challenges may be significant, the optimism, interest and enthusiasm in the arts and culture sector should not be underestimated. It remains the fastest growing economic sector in the UK, and those driving it forward continue to ensure their voices, and those of the diverse population of this country, can be heard.
