Why do art and culture matter?
Because art and culture open our minds and stir our hearts
Because art and culture inspire our children so they can flourish
Because art and culture help us understand our past, and show us how we can shape the future
Because art and culture help us build better places to live and work, and improve our health and well-being
This is why the Arts Council supports, develops and invests in artists, arts organisations, museums and libraries across England
We believe everyone, everywhere should have the opportunity to experience great art and culture
Together we can tell a powerful story about why art and culture matter. Join in #culturematters
