The council has a ten year plan to replace the term “artist” with “creative practitioners.”
Hmmmm. Wouldn’t they have to change their name to Creative Practitioners Council England?
Arts Council England has said it will start referring to “creative practitioners” because people feel uncomfortable with the term “artist”.
It is part of its ten-year plan to champion culture for “every person in every town, village and city” and make it more inclusive.
Disadvantaged communities are expected to be among those that will benefit most from the strategy, entitled Let’s Create. The council says it will support the use of technology to “distribute cultural content” into homes, cultural venues and community spaces.
The report frequently refers to “culture” instead of “the arts, museums and libraries” as part of efforts to be “inclusive” of the activities it supports.
OHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Disadvantaged communities are intimidated by the word “artist.”
I guess we figured out why these “people” are disadvantaged.
