Starving Artists (feat. Jain Edwards) | 054
Nov 9th, 2020 by mandatoryredistributionparty
Just what is art? Is a tree an art? Is beyblade art? Sean and Jack are joined by arts and culture correspondent Jain Edwards to unpick the sticky state of the arts in a society that can only measure value in terms of profit. They discuss the problem of defending arts and culture based on the industry's £10.8billion per year contribution to the UK's GDP, as well as imagining ways to overcome the challenges that stop arts being truly inclusive and adventurous.
