Visual Arts APPG

First Registered: 14/07/2021 • Last updated on: 15/06/2022

The APPG provides a forum for parliamentarians to discuss the role played by the visual arts in the UK. It informs parliamentarians about the latest issues affecting the visual arts community, the contribution the visual arts make to our society and economy and puts forward ideas about how it can remain a vibrant and world-leading sector.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
