ENYAN South East Bridge Arts Council England’s Simon Mellor: “Getting the best deal for culture as we leave the EU”

“Arts and culture needs to play a greater role in Britain’s future at home and abroad. Our shared national culture has long been a source of soft power, making friends and building dialogue. There is an important economic dimension as well, with our National Portfolio Organisations alone earning £34 million abroad each year. That’s why it’s important we continue to look outwards. We will do everything we can to help get the best deal possible for arts and culture.”
