Press Conference and Information Meeting
for all Cork-based Artists Arts Workers
The primary concern of the Campaign is to protect arts funding in the forthcoming budget from recession-inspired slash burn recommendations made by the McCarthy Report. The aim of this meeting is to attract publicity and raise support at a grassroots level for The National Campaign for the Arts, which is a broad and inclusive coalition that reflects the scale, reach and diversity of the arts in Ireland today. Its membership has a national reach that includes major festivals, venues, producers and representative organisations in visual arts, theatre, film, dance, music, literature, architecture and collaborative arts. Meetings like these have been taking place all over the country since the end of September and it is now time for Cork to stand up and be counted.
Date:Thursday 29th October 2009
Location: Everyman Palace Theatre, Cork
