The impact of leaving the EU on the arts, creative industries and cultural education – and what should be done.

 

The creative industries are the UK’s fastest growing  economic sector.  Contribution to growth has far outstripped other sectors for many years now.  Our film, television, video games, music, design, fashion and publishing are world renowned.  Our museums, galleries, theatres and heritage are major reasons for people to visit this country and they contribute significantly to wider inward investment.

All of this constitutes Brand Britain; this is our calling card across the globe.  It is a key driver for future success and employment.  The creative industries give the UK its competitive edge.  That edge is a consequence of being open and international.

This document is a first step in a fast-moving political, diplomatic and economic environment ahead of the invoking of Article 50 by March 2017.
