The petition from the Public Campaign for the Arts demands that they reconsider the 50% cut and recognise the ‘value of arts subjects in education’.

Public Campaign for the Arts director Jack Gamble stressed the importance of the arts especially during the pandemic saying, “The arts enrich our lives, our communities and our economy too. In lockdown, millions turned to them to support their mental health”.
