How can arts and culture improve our public services?

Leading thinktank, NEF, together with Artswork have published their report on why the public sector would do well to continue investing in culture and arts despite the local government funding cuts.

The report highlights the groundbreaking efforts made by Kent County Council to work in partnership with museums and theatres to improve mental health and wellbeing in the county.

To help museums unlock new opportunities, Artswork now offer more support to help get organisations ready to embrace commissioning. Look out for related events and seminars in your area, or visit the Artswork website for more information.
