Plan To Boost London Arts Big Time

A new initiative aims to raise the value of London’s arts industry by a third to £32 billion and create 200,000 new jobs in 10 years. “London’s creative industries currently employ 500,000 people and are responsible for one in five of all new jobs in the capital. But an investigation by the mayor’s Commission for the Creative Industries found the industry lacks international recognition, and young entrepreneurs often struggle to get financial backing.”
