Arts funding should focus on ‘everyday creativity’, researchers claim

A new academic report says that shifting cultural policy to enable people to be creative and make their own culture would be a fairer use of public funds and lead to greater equality.

 

Academics are calling for a “radical” shift in the way the arts are supported and funded towards a focus on enabling people to be creative and make their own culture.
