“Cultural services make a considerable contribution to the wider aims of both central and local government, whether tackling social exclusion, encouraging a healthier lifestyle, providing opportunities for voluntary and community activity, sparking urban and rural regeneration or stimulating a commitment to lifelong learning as well as enriching people’s lives.”
Culture is what defines a community and draws people together for their individual and collective creative growth and development. Culture has both a material and valuable dimension encompassing a wide range of activities and encouraging involvement and discovery in both the history and the future of the community.
