See? It’s not just me

David Puttnam has also weighed into the debate on arts, in an interview in The Observer today: Arts spending will be vital for economic revival, says Lord Puttnam.

Headline quotes:

“We have no chance of an economic revival without a full understanding of the role that creativity plays. It is warm words and apple pie at the moment.”

“In the House of Lords, the same 15 people turn up to discuss the sector every time. Most members, I am sure, think of it as a good thing, something they might go to once a fortnight. But do they realise what an economic driver it is?”
