The ARTS POLICY HUB is a resource for activists, artists, policy makers and politicians, nationally and locally.

Here you will find links to Labour’s cultural policy, as well as that of trade unions and other organisations and individuals who share our commitment to cultural democracy.

We aim to share research and evidence to inform our discussions, shape our collective response and strengthen current and future policy.
