No More Cuts to the Arts

This petition had 4,176 supporters

It costs just 13p per person per week to maintain the arts in Northern Ireland. 

A small investment in the Arts yields Big returns for Everyone.

The arts work hard for our economy and our society: 

  • Promoting NI as a location of choice for international businesses
  • Generating majoy employment through the Creative Industries
  • Regenerating our towns and cities
  • Bringing people and communities closer together
  • Creating a place where we all want to live

The arts have already shouldered more than their fair share of recent cuts leaving the arts with just 0.1% of the overall budget for NI.

Please act now - sign this petition. Please note that the Arts Council of Northern Ireland does not require or expect that any donations are made in respect of this petition.

"I ask the NI Government to make no more cuts to the arts in the 2015 Budget for Northern Ireland."
