The Arts Dividend Revisited : Why Investment in Culture Pays, Paperback / softback Book

The Arts Dividend Revisited : Why Investment in Culture Pays Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


England's artists, arts organisations, museums and libraries enrich our lives, increase our knowledge and open our minds to new possibilities.

They make our villages, towns and cities better, more creative places to be.

They build our reputation for innovation, boosting our economy and giving our nation increased prominence on the international stage. Sustained and strategic public investment in art and culture enables this to happen.

It's investment that pays big dividends in everyone's lives. The Arts Dividend Revisited encourages us to consider our country's innate creativity and the invaluable rewards to be gained from the public investment that enables the arts, museums and libraries to be a part of everyone's lives, no matter who they are or where they live. The result of a non-stop five-year journey across the length and breadth of England, Darren Henley reflects on our remarkable national cultural landscape from Cumbria to Kent and from Cornwall to Northumberland - and why he believes that public investment in creativity and culture can help us all to lead happier lives.
