Our stories

We want to express how the arts and culture benefit people and communities. Each and every story helps to build our case.

When the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic threatened the UK’s cultural sector, 150,000 people joined our campaign to urge the Government to deliver the Culture Recovery Fund. Many recorded stories about what the arts meant to them, and what was at stake for their communities.

Tell us what the arts mean to you.

This is a people-powered campaign and we want to hear from you!
