ARTS and creative industries across the UK will be toured by South Yorkshire MP and shadow culture minister Dan Jarvis.
The Barnsley Central Labour MP is going on a fact-finding mission to ‘talk to people on the ground who are involved in the day-to-day running of the sector’.
Mr Jarvis said: “Culture is a crucial part of the fabric of British life. The last Labour Government did some fantastic work to generate momentum in the creative economy that led to world-leading fine art, theatre and animation. “Now is the time to build on that legacy.”
He added: “I will be talking to industry experts about how we can sustain jobs and growth in the arts and creative industries.”
