In connection to the spending cuts it was recently discovered and announced that if a petition gathered over 100,000 signatures it would be guaranteed ‘air time’ at the House of Commons for a full debate.
Below is the national arts campaign to achieve this. Please can I urge everyone of you to take a few seconds to add your name to the list and to pass on to anyone else you feel ‘values the arts’ so that they may add to it too. It will make a huge difference to make our voice heard.
Here is the link to add your name to the petition. http://www.ivaluethearts.org.uk/.
Now… in my head I always hear “arts and humanties” when I hear arts, but the government needs to realise that it’s not all about money, and this is a great way for the digital to expediate bringing voices together…
