Labour launches Arts Alliance

30th September 2014

Policy ideas for Labour’s 2015 manifesto and beyond will be the focus of a new initiative, announced at the party conference.

An initiative aimed at bringing together “all those who care about the arts and who share our vision for a 21st century arts policy which delivers arts for all” has been launched by Shadow Culture Secretary Harriet Harman MP. Announced at the Labour party conference in Manchester last week, Labour Arts Alliance aims to make the case for the arts and campaign for the return of a Labour Government. It will involve a “national network of people in the arts and creative industries” and will facilitate “the sharing of objectives and best practice”, devising a strategy for the growth of the sector and contributing policy ideas for the 2015 manifesto and beyond.

Harriet Harman said: “The arts are fundamental to what it is to be human. For each individual, for all our communities and for the British economy. That is why a future Labour Government would ensure the arts are for everyone, not just for some – with real focus on young people.”
