If you have ever been to any big city like New York, Paris or London, you will know what it means to be surrounded by art and culture every hour of the day. These cities pride themselves on being hubs for creativity and cultural exchange, filled with art venues both historic and modern. It is no surprise then that these cities have also become centers for global tourism, forever attracting new generations looking for opportunities to participate.
It’s also not surprising that investment in the arts has become a strategy employed by local governments as part of a broader economic recovery agenda. But rather than supporting only large institutions such as ballets and symphonies, some are now turning to genres that historically haven’t received much government support.
