Culture is an important sector in society covering the arts, heritage, museums, libraries, film, music, performing arts, design, architecture, crafts and sports. At the same time, culture has the potential to transform people, business, and society, by developing transformational capabilities, fostering creative new ideas and enhancing self-reflection and self-transformation.
