Statement from Caroline Norbury OBE, Chief Executive, Creative UK, in response to the Labour Party’s education policy proposals:
“Creative learning teaches cognitive and communication skills, the ability to think both critically and creatively, and the initiative and intuition to solve complex problems. Access to meaningful creative education must be universally available for all children. We welcome the policy proposals outlined in Labour’s Opportunity Mission, to ensure creative subjects are firmly embedded in the school curriculum at all stages of education.
Creative UK and our members have long fought for the opportunity for every individual to experience the transformative power of creativity, no matter their background, and I am pleased that Labour has listened to the creative sector’s position.”
