Let’s keep art accessible to all

SUARTS arts for allIslington has a proud tradition of artistic creativity. Many wonderful artists have made our borough their home. Art plays an important role in our society. Art supports tourism, our creative industries and helps us achieve a better understanding of ourselves.

It’s great to see the University of the Arts students flourishing in Islington, especially since the opening of their fantastic new campus in King’s Cross. The UK must continue to support art and art education. I support the University of Arts Student Union “Arts for All” Campaign. Themes of the campaign includes promoting art education as a public good, investing in the creative industries and protecting funding for arts subjects in Schools. Let’s keep art accessible for all our community.
