Call to organisations – How will you maintain your international working? How will we hear the international artists voices?

With recent events in the Middle East and beyond, there is a greater imperative for these international voices to be heard and, in particular for the voices of the artists to have a platform.

But, the current funding cuts from public and other bodies are starting to affect organisations up and down the United Kingdom. Where will you make your cuts internally? Is it the research and training budgets? The international links and residencies that will suffer? In addition, the mechanisms in place to finance bringing international work into the country are diminishing rapidly. Our research shows that the main funding for incoming work for international artists is now from the Arts Councils and with heavy demands on this reduced funding, will this strand of work suffer disproportionately?
