Since 2010, the overall budget of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has been cut by over a third.
The most recent cut to arts and culture could lead to a third of those supported by Arts Council England receiving a 100 per cent cut.
At the same time, local government’s arts and culture spend has been cut by £124 million.
We are forming a human chain in front of the National Gallery to call on the government to protect funding for arts and culture.
The human chain will be followed by a special event with speakers on the value of arts funding, live music and poetry at the nearby 12 Bar Club. Tickets for this will be £5.
