#ArtIsEssential is a campaign by the Contemporary Visual Arts Network to unite the arts and culture sector throughout 2021.


“The arts and culture sector contributes £2.8 billion a year to the Treasury via taxation to the UK economy, and provides 363,700 jobs, but recent events have exposed the delicate ecology of our sector. We need to ensure that policy and decision makers are considering the real needs of our sector, and see the far reaching impact the visual arts has in our communities and the contribution it makes to our economy.” 

CVAN #ArtIsEssential campaign


Impressions is proud to be joining this important campaign by CVAN, which will unite the voice of the cultural sector in the run-up to the Government Comprehensive Spending Review. We need to come together to demonstrate that art really is essential!
