Arts Council Decisions


The Funding for the first round of Commissions have announced. These are designed to promote creative partnerships between a diverse range of commissioners and artists. The Arts Council received 65 applications and has offered a total of 33 awards in response, none of them for literature. Why did no one commission a book? Or a poetry collection?

There are some interesting sounding partnerships though.

Interesting list. Good to see that the credit crunch hasn't hit arts just yet.

They're certain to cut back considerably in the next budget but it's scary how little they spend on literature compare to some of the other arts and how much less it will be next year.
