HOME’s statement on the Government’s arts and culture support package

“We’re pleased to welcome the announcement of the Government’s support package. It is a clear signal of the importance of arts and culture to UK life and will play a vital part in the reopening of our cultural institutions. It is also the result of dedicated work from people from across all the cultural sectors, and testament to the commitment and passion of those who work in this industry.

“As the UK moves towards recovery, the incredibly talented people who work both in front of and behind the scenes will be crucial. We hope this announcement will mean they will have an industry to return to.

“We look forward to further announcements on how these funds will be distributed to support the organisations and freelance artists who make UK culture a watchword for excellence across the world. And we look forward to being able to announce more on how this support will enable us to reopen to our visitors, who we have missed so much.”
