Since 2010 most of Birmingham’s main cultural organisations have already faced cuts of around 80%. Birmingham City Council are now proposing a further cut of nearly 50% in their grants to arts and cultural organisations.
Please sign our petition to reverse the proposed cuts to cultural funding in the Birmingham City Council 2019 Budget.
The proposed cuts would have a huge impact on Birmingham’s cultural sector which makes a vital contribution to this city’s economy and reputation, benefiting hundreds of thousands of Birmingham residents each year.
The work of the organisations facing these cuts reaches out into the communities of the city with powerful effect and influence, directly supporting social and community engagement, and our work with young people and schools. The cuts proposed puts these vital arts programmes at risk.
