We would like to bring you up to date on 126 Artist-run gallery in Galway. Some of you will already have heard that we are facing the prospect of closure because of a drastic and sudden 64% cut of local funding. 126 is extremely important to many artists, curators, critics and administrators who have cut their teeth through this artist-led organisation. We need your help now to make some noise and sign the petition to have Galway City Council to review this decision as soon as possible.
This funding cut has been sudden, and is not in line with other cuts to other arts organisations made by the council, and the board of 126 feels that there is a lack of understanding in regards to the cultural importance of 126.
