REBALANCING CULTURAL CAPITAL - INVESTMENT OUTSIDE LONDON
"Last year 51% of ACE’s £322m public funding budget was spent on London, and of the further £450m used by the DCMS to direct-fund 16 major cultural organisations, an estimated 90% went to London. As a result, Londoners benefited from £69 of cultural spending per head, compared with just £4.50 in the rest of England." - Arts Professional.
