The Culture White Paper delineates the vision of culture and also culture in action, building on what has been done before. As the Minister of State puts it in his introduction, ‘it is not a revolution but an evaluation’, which focuses on rejuvenating role of culture in society and economy, and primarily supporting creative industries; increasing opportunities for children and young people; the role of culture in place-making; contribution of culture as soft power. It is the first white paper for culture in 50 years.
