The launch of the Government's Culture White Paper is one of the less high profile but arguably most important measures of whether a 'One Nation' approach by the Government is alive and well.
Given recent stories about opportunities for actors being dominated by those from a 'posh' background and a total lack of options for black and ethnic minority actors, the Government needs to grab the culture agenda.
But the same limitations are said to apply across an array of cultural outlets and cries of 'elitism' remain loud. Especially in the wake of the row over disability benefits and Iain Duncan Smith's resignation, this makes the White Paper one of the most important consultations that the Government will issue.
The culture minister has pledged to put arts "at the heart of everyday life" and ensure everyone can access culture, "no matter what their background".Launching The Culture White Paper, Ed Vaizey said arts and heritage must not be for "just the privileged few".The paper includes a plan "to inspire" children "from poorer families" by giving access to actors and curators.
