Secretary of State praises the impact of NYT and arts education.

On Friday the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Jeremy Wright MP made a speech about the Value of Culture speech at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry. Speaking about the National Youth Theatre’s impact he said:

“Look at the alumni of our world renowned National Youth Theatre.They are not only celebrated actors…but also writers, musicians and journalists who have been able to transfer the skills they learned to thrive in their chosen career. Skills of self-confidence, teamwork and dedication are eminently transferable, and they are learned through the opportunities arts and culture can offer. And I want more young people to be able to take advantage of these opportunities.”
