Life is not about merely existing, it is also about living a full life. The arts and culture give meaning and fulfilment to our daily endeavours. Wealth should not only be measured in monetary terms, but in the satisfaction that we get from creativity.
I would like to volunteer for Arts Emergency as the creative industries represent a powerhouse of talent in the UK. All too often we hear negative portrayals of young people, but there is huge potential out there that we need to tap into and encourage rather than castigate.
