Not really for the majority of the population. How many people from scheme estates and poor areas will this affect. Not many I think. Even the 'vision' is difficult to understand unless you are middle class and have benefitted from a regular income and can afford to spend money on the 'arts'

Just exactly are you transforming. It's fairly obvious that there is a divide from the haves and have nots and you are condescending in this vision. Spend the money on better schools, teachers and staff then an appreciation of 'culture' becomes the norm.

Why concentrate on culture when a lot of communities can't afford food and rely on foodbanks. These communities might consider dancing in the streets if their bellies were full and they had regular work.

None - any attempts to provide cultural events apply a Disney effect to attract the masses and now are a far cry from the original event
