Invest for Success

Hundreds of performers and creative workers took to the streets in October as part of the TUC March for A Future that Works, calling on the Government to Invest for Success. Our message was simple -  without public investment, we wouldn’t have The King’s Speech, The History Boys, Matilda, One Man Two Guvnors and many other successes.

Public investment, be it from National Government/Arts Councils or local authorities, helps independent theatre, film and variety venues to survive and flourish. Without it, the UK’s commercial sector and broadcasters wouldn’t be able to access the talent they need to be the best in the world.

Now we need to mobilise as many people as we can in the lead up to the Chancellor’s Autumn statement on 5th December.

The Autumn Statement provides an update on the Government’s plans for the economy based on the latest forecasts from the Office for Budget Responsibility.

We need to make the case against further cuts to the arts and culture and to demonstrate that the modest investment the Government makes in these sectors reaps rewards for the economy.

What can you do?

We’re asking people to tweet the Treasury (@hmtreasury) any time during the week 26th – 30th November, telling them why the arts and culture are a valuable and productive part of our economy.
