The Arts Council NI’s CEO, Roisin McDonough, calls for No More Cuts – #‎13pForTheArts

Arts Council Ni’s CEO, Roisin McDonough, shows just how little is spent on the arts in NI… per person… per week


Arts Council Chief, Roisin McDonough, calls for No More Cuts To The Arts and launches the #‎13pForTheArts‬ campaign based on the statistic that the Northern Ireland government currently invests just 13 pence per head of population per week in direct funding for the arts.

Arts Council of Northern Ireland Chief Executive Roisin McDonough today called on the NI Executive to implement no more cuts to the arts sector, warning that any further reduction to an already fragile budget will have a devastating impact on arts provision here.
