General Election 2017: Is your candidate For The Arts?

National Campaign for the Arts has produced a prompt sheet which suggests three questions to ask your Parliamentary candidates, to gauge how knowledgeable and committed they are to issues facing the arts in the UK.

As their Chair, Samuel West, says, “The National Campaign for the Arts is fully focused on enabling arts audiences and participants to better understand and advocate for the vital role public funding plays in making the UK a world leader in arts and culture.

“It is essential for current and future generations that the arts are not forgotten at this election and that successful candidates realise how important affordable access to quality arts is to their constituents.”
