Culture mission for MP Jarvis

Have your say

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.”
