Creative Education Manifesto

During the season of party conferences, UKCCD supports the Creative Education Manifesto, #artisessential, and joins the lobby to reverse the government’s biased promotion of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Medicine) subjects at the expense of arts subjects. This bias has the potential to hinder the development of creativity, which is essential for the future of our creative industries, contributing significantly to GDP and employment (larger than the financial sector) and scientific research.
