Culture Counts - Our Submission to DCMS Inquiry into the social impact of participation in culture and sport.

On January 17 2018, The Department of Culture Media & Sport (Westminster) launched an Inquiry into ways in which taking part in the arts, cultural activities and sport can have a positive social impact.

"Informing policymakers of the social impact of the cultural sector is core to Culture Counts does."

Culture Counts submitted written evidence the committee taking input from our members across the arts, screen, heritage and creative industries. Informing policymakers of the social, cultural, economic and environmental impact of the cultural sector is core to what Culture Counts does. Our submission included evidence and research relating to the inquiry's five key themes;

  • Social Mobility
  • Health
  • Crime Reduction
  • Education
  • Community Engagement and Diversity

A PDF of our submission to the inquiry is available here.
