Better Support for the Arts

The cultural sector has paid a heavy price because of COVID-19. Protecting and helping this vibrant industry as we look to recover will be one of my core priorities as Mayor.

Culture is often trivialised as a luxury rather than a source of employment and tourism revenue. My aim is to support the entire cultural ecosystem -- the freelancers, the supply chain, the grass-routes venues, the artist studios.
I will release funding to support the whole cast, not just the headline acts.
