“Our cultural inheritance and creative potential are one of our country’s greatest assets, and the arts have a huge potential to drive national renewal and change lives for the better.
“As we recover from an awful two years, the work of Arts Council England is more important than ever. I’ve seen first-hand in the music industry just how difficult this pandemic has been for freelancers, businesses, venues and organisations across the sector – and the impact is still being felt by many.
“I passionately believe in the transformational power that creativity and culture have to improve our communities, our economy, and our society – and I look forward to sitting on National Council and working with colleagues across the sector and in Government to help unleash that enormous potential.”
