&Co has launched ‘Facing Change’, a campaign in response to the recent inquiry into arts and heritage funding from the Culture, Media and Sport Committee.
The campaign is intended to facilitate and co-ordinate practical approaches for arts organisations to work collectively towards promoting the value of the arts, exploring how to adapt our organisations to new circumstances and developing opportunities to support one another.
A questionnaire has been set up to help us all understand the impact that the cuts will have on our members and our region. The findings and responses will be shared in a written report and we hope to discuss this openly with those who take part in an online forum and also at our CEO symposium on 16 September 2010.
All member CEOs will have received an email from Alison Edbury, our Chief Executive, earlier, giving details on the campaign and a link to the survey. It would be very helpful if you could point your Chief Executive (or equivalent) to the below link, so that they can provide input on behalf of your organisation.
To find out further details about the inquiry, please visit the Parliament website.
