This Culture White Paper sets out the government’s vision, strategy and proposals for the cultural sectors (the arts, museums and galleries, libraries, archives and heritage). It outlines the key issues facing the cultural sectors today and the role we want culture to play in our society; what the government and our public bodies will do to address those issues; and how we will ensure that everyone can enjoy and benefit from culture. It is the first white paper for culture in more than 50 years and only the second ever published.
