What should government do for the arts?

1 post in this topic

Supporting the Arts: the Guardian asks interested parties what the next Government should do or not do, for the arts. A quote from the director Nicholas Hytner:

The worry for me is that generations of kids are being brought up who won't be able to know what they like. The old liberal humanist education that gave students a framework through which they could appreciate, interpret and enjoy has not yet evolved into something that addresses or includes enough of tomorrow's audience. I don't feel I can make specific proposals, but I think that results-orientated arts education is less important than a commitment to introduce all kids regularly, not just once a year, to live arts, galleries and museums.
