A Cultural Manifesto was launched this morning at a press call at the British Museum. Directors of the Tate, Southbank Centre, National Theatre and British Museum put forward their case for what sustained investment in the arts over the last 15 years has achieved. They want this story to evolve further and are calling for the next government to continue to invest in the arts.
17p of each of our taxes a week is spent on the arts. The cost of half a pint of milk.
"Let's not spill the milk", Alan Davey, Chief Executive of Arts Council England
