Lewis, a finalist in Performance, Politics & Society, told The London Tab he felt most upset when the government reduced the subject he loved to something “meaningless.” These students aren’t the only ones who feel strongly about preserving the arts, though. According to a recent poll conducted by the Public Campaign for the Arts, 70 per cent of British adults think students should have the choice to study creative arts subjects in higher education whilst a further 57 per cent think the government should maintain funding for these degrees.
