Arts In Somerset – My letter in the Guardian

Under the title “County council scythes through voluntary and rural services“, my letter on Somerset County Council’s decision to decimate the arts in the county by abolishing ALL grants is published in today’s Guardian.

“So, Tory-controlled Somerset has voted to cut all direct grants to arts groups. Since her portfolio no longer includes arts, will Councillor Christine Lawrence be reducing her special responsibility allowance of some £16K on top of her basic allowance of £10,000? I work full-time in the arts, touring the country, delivering high-quality live performances to audiences, and I – and my many colleagues in the arts – would be happy to have that sort of guaranteed income.”
