We don’t hear from libraries minister Ed Vaizey very often – but here’s an invitation we think you won’t be able to resist.  He wants to know what we think about culture, and how the government could… er… support it!

Among other things, he wonders how he can help sustain ‘vibrant, healthy communities across the country’ and how to  ‘ensure that everyone can learn about and through culture, and get the right encouragement and opportunities…’

I’m sure we can give him some suggestions.
