Supporting London's culture and creative industries is one of the Mayor's top priorities. Here's why:
The Mayor's vision for Culture in London
Culture is what makes London, London:
This means hardwiring culture into London’s economic and social development, making it a 24 hour city, shouting about our creativity around the globe and making sure every Londoner has the chance to engage with and benefit from culture.
Culture enriches our lives:
London is also home to thousands of cutting-edge creative businesses. Many are world leaders in their fields, from fashion to architecture, tech and film special effects. The creativity and innovation of London’s arts and culture sector plays a huge part in our city’s global appeal and success.
Culture for all:
London is home to world famous institutions like the British Museum, the Tate and the V&A, and the Mayor wants every Londoner to feel able to access our fantastic arts and culture. We want to work with those who share our vision to open our culture to more of London’s communities. It is this culture that makes London the best city on the planet. And it is for everyone.
