“When we talk about the value of arts and culture, we should always start with the intrinsic – how arts and culture illuminate our inner lives and enrich our emotional world. This is what we cherish.”
– The Value of Arts and Culture to People and Society Evidence Review’, published March 2015
“The Arts are a means by which we can investigate and understand the past and the present, our world and our feelings. We can do this by ‘doing’ it or by ‘spectating’ it or both. The wonder of libraries, museums and archives is that we can relate ourselves with others – often stretching back hundreds of thousands of years. This is one of the ways in which we can discover the history and shape of humanity and where or how we fit into it.”
–Michael Rosen, Broadcaster and children’s author
“Culture and art are a lifeblood for people both as individuals and as part of communities. Whether enjoying a visit to a museum or art gallery, singing in a choir, listening to extraordinary musicians, reading poetry or relishing the excitement of a street performance, this is part of what makes life worthwhile.”
–Sandy Nairne, ex Director National Portrait Gallery
