Don’t Cut the Arts


Dave Shrigley’s animation highlights the need to save the arts from dramatic spending cuts – not least because they bring tremendous benefits to the UK, including economic value, and for that reason alone surely investment to encourage growth is better than simply cutting back.

However, despite months of campaigning, the bad news just keeps on coming with Moray Council the latest to announce it is cutting the arts budget for the region which will impact negatively on community groups, mental health organisations, childrens organisations and other groups, as well as arts organisations and artists themselves.

Arts organisations are already lean, keen and creative – how will they weather this particular storm?
