It is a particularly uncertain time as we continue to understand the long-term effects of the pandemic on our lives, and the impact of Brexit on how we live and work. The #ArtIsEssential campaign has been set up to unite us as one voice. As a sector, we need to come together to be visible throughout 2021 and the run-up to the Government Comprehensive Spending Review.
