New Zealand's progressive PM has much to teach other world leaders in her championing of the arts and compassionate government. As she looks to an election next year, we look at how her leadership has shaped the arts.

In 2017 Jacindamania, as it became known, was rife as Jacinda Ardern rose in popularity at a time when the world seemed to lack leaders with compassion and a clear vision for progressive reform, particularly around climate change. As the newly minted leader of the New Zealand Labour Party, she impressed many as a likeable candidate who quickly won over a demographic invested in her promises for environmental and social reform.
