Somerset's artless arts cuts

It's hard times for all. But cutting 100% of the arts budget, as Somerset County Council is planning to, is not the way to negotiate a crisis; if anything, the arts are more important in times of austerity than ever. See what David Shrigley thinks in this video about saving the arts:

Storytelling and performance is a vital human tradition and not funding it severely affects people now and, more importantly, the next generation.

I understand that cuts need to be made, but they need to be reasonable and take a long-term view - saving a little now will have a huge effect in future.

If you live in Somerset, sign the petition to stop these cuts by 16 December.

Somerset arts cuts, arts budget cuts, save the art budget
