The Arts Dividend looks in depth at seven key benefits that art and culture bring to our lives: encouraging our nation's creativity; advancing education; impacting positively on health and wellbeing; supporting innovation and technology; providing defining characteristics to villages, towns and cities; contributing to economic prosperity; and enhancing England's reputation for cultural excellence on the global stage.; This book encourages us to consider our country's innate creativity and the invaluable rewards to be gained from the public investment that enables great art and culture to be a part of everyone's lives, no matter who they are or where they live.; Having spent a year travelling the length and breadth of England, Darren Henley shares his reflections on our remarkable national arts and culture landscape from Cumbria to Kent and from Cornwall to Northumberland.
