It has been proven that an education in the Arts helps children develop creative, analytical and problem solving skills that greatly improve their skills in all subjects, as well as giving them self confidence and a way to express themselves. However, with Arts funding in Britain being cut by the government to a dangerous extent, we believe that it is essential for children continue to gain the essential benefits of an Arts education.
The creative industries in the UK are worth over £71 billion. It is critically important for the survival of our internationally renowned creative industries that we have a fresh pipeline of young talent drawn from all backgrounds across the UK to continue their success.
The recent publication of the Warwick Commision, Enriching Britain: Culture, Creativity and Growth has incensed Into Opera further. The key message from the report was that there should be ‘equal access for everyone to a rich cultural education and the opportunity to live a creative life.’ Added to this was the concerning comment: ‘There are barriers and inequalities in Britain today that prevent this from being a universal human right’.
Into Opera believes that all young people should have the chance to enjoy a high quality cultural education
Into Opera is delighted to be working in partnership with Children and the Arts a charity which helps children, from disadvantaged backgrounds, across the UK to become involved with the arts.
