The State of the Arts
The State of the Arts covers culture and politics from northern England, and on occasion beyond.
We provide space for the discussion ideas, thoughts, people and events that help shape our cultural & political landscape.
We’re a small, committed editorial team with lots of experience of working across different elements of culture. We’re always on the lookout for interesting ideas, people and organisations so do get in touch.
