On why the arts matter

Good art stops being art – it becomes a way of being happy, of receiving something beautiful and human from stranger, of confirming one’s identity, of being not alone. This is the average end-product of a good-quality and satisfying job in the arts sector of British industry. Why would I be a tosser for defending this?

A wonderful defence of support for the arts from AL Kennedy in the Guardian. Hat Tip Laurence Macklin.
