Episode 7: Cultured Communities: arts, communities and how we fund them.

October 18, 2020

Ben Cooper of the Fabian Society talks to Katie and Margaret about his new report into public funding of the arts, and how the current model entrenches inequality between London and the regions. Using the examples of Hull City of Culture 2017 and Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture 2019, he examines how arts and culture was one of the fastest growing sectors in the economy valued at £111 billion in 2018, and how arts and culture can contribute to economic, social, and physical and mental resilience for all our communities.
