National Art & Culture should not be just for the London ‘elite’
All arts organisations that receive public money must show they are reaching out & increasing access for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to help find the stars of tomorrow and open arts & culture up for all.  The move is part of a Culture White Paper published by the Government last week. It is the first comprehensive Government strategy for the sector in more than 50 years and aims to boost access to arts, heritage & culture to help improve social mobility and increase life chances across the country.
