Birmingham City Council slashes arts funding by 25 PER CENT

Recommended Posts

As someone who works in the arts in Birmingham, this is incredibly sad and concerning! I have been amazed by the generosity of the public during the Big Give over the last four days, but it seems that art organisations must rely upon this more and more.

I expect the Council is damned if they do and damned if they don't.


I consider myself to have been very fortunate to have seen the establishment of SWRB/BRB in Birmingham since 1984. Birmingham took the far sighted decision to make the city a centre of dance and since 1990 around 60 dancers a year have had paid employment and we have been able to enjoy the fruits of it all. I am sure the company will survive, even if it is in a smaller form.
