Next week, the Arts Council will publish Create: A journal of perspectives on the value of art and culture.
The publication features a series of thought-provoking pieces from a wide range of contributors about the world we live in and the role that arts and culture play in education, economy, health, and our hopes as a society.
- Economist Howard Davies on the economic impact of the arts and creative industries
- Novelist Naomi Alderman on running from zombies and writing for video games
- John Major tells us why the arts are not an ‘add-on’
- Neil Gaiman and Toby Litt going head to head on fantasy, libraries and the future
- and poet and YouTube phenomenon Hollie McNish discussing using rap to teach maths
Create will also include a specially commissioned graphic story, ‘In the beginning there was love’, by Karrie Fransman, and new poems from some of the UK’s finest wordsmiths.
To read the full publication, visit artscouncil.org.uk/create from Tuesday 18 November.
