Following on from our ground-breaking research into the impact of Covid-19 on the UK’s creative and cultural sectors, we are now pleased to publish a new report detailing 12 recommendations for policymakers.

This report has been developed alongside our policy partner Culture Commons. It seeks to translate the Centre’s findings from the original Culture in Crisis report into evidence-led recommendations, which aim to support the recovery and rebuilding of the sectors.

Ben Walmsley, Director at the Centre for Cultural Value, says:

These recommendations represent the vital step from insight to action. They seek to offer a way forward for the UK Government and devolved administrations to address the structural deficiencies within the creative and cultural sectors while maximising the life-affirming potential of arts and culture.

The policy recommendations were shared at an event in the UK Parliament on Thursday 19 May 2022, hosted by Baroness Judith Blake.

Ben Walmsley presented the recommendations and was joined by Lord Parkinson, Minister for the Arts, as well as senior officials and sector representatives.

This high-level event is part of the Centre for Cultural Value’s wider efforts to ensure that policy is always research-led and supports decision makers at local and national levels to safeguard and enhance the creative and cultural life of the nation.
