DCMS The Culture White Paper

Culture brings many benefits. This white paper is concerned with three areas in particular:

– the intrinsic value: the enriching value of culture in and of itself;
– the social value: improving educational attainment and helping people to be healthier; and
– the economic value: the contribution culture makes to economic growth and job-creation.

Whilst sport doesn’t feature heavily in this White Paper, it does echoe many of the points raised in the Governement’s new sport strategy: A New Strategy for an Active Nation.

This White Paper does recognise the wider impact of culture on society including the desistance from crime. More evidence can be found in a review developed by the Culture and Sport Evidence (CASE) programme which is a joint programme of strategic research led by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) in collaboration with the Arts Council England (ACE), English Heritage (EH) and Sport England (SE).

This review is also available for download in our resource library.
