Today's top storyLabour Arts Alliance launch
Labour Arts Alliance was launched by Harriet Harman at Labour’s conference in Manchester last week. The Alliance will make a case for the arts by:
- developing a national network of people in the arts and creative industries;
- facilitating the sharing of objectives and best practice;
- devising a strategy for the growth of the sector;
- contributing policy ideas for the 2015 manifesto and beyond.
Speaking about the Alliance and its launch Harman says: "It was great to be launching Labour Arts Alliance in Manchester, which is the centre of so much art and culture. 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.
Labour Arts Alliance will be an important new platform to bring together all those who care about the arts and who share our vision for a 21st century arts policy which delivers arts for all."
