Created by three prominent cultural figures and government advisors, this heavyweight intervention is essential reading for key opinion formers and commentators on the arts and education 

Education policy is shifting towards science and technical subjects, and yet the UK’s creative and cultural industries are widely recognized as being among the best in the world. This timely and important book argues that a strong cultural education benefits children and young people through the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and experiences; but it also drives the creative cultural industries and spurs growth in the UK, as well as enhancing society through awareness of our common cultural heritage. Looking at archeology, architecture, and the built environment, archives, craft, dance, design, digital arts, drama and theater, film and cinemas, galleries, heritage, libraries, literature, live performance, museums, music, poetry, and the visual arts, Sorrell, Roberts, and Henley offer a blueprint for an enhanced cultural education policy that will be required reading for parents and practitioners alike.
