Museums Sheffield is seeking your support to help it make the case for culture in Sheffield. Following the Arts Council’s decision to turn down their application to become one of ACE’s Renaissance Major Partners, and the Local Authority funding cuts, Museums Sheffield is now facing some difficult decisions for the year ahead.
To help Museums Sheffield makes it case you are asked to:
1) Contact your local councillor and MP and ask them to protest to the Arts Council on your behalf that culture in Sheffield is being eroded.
Many councillors and MP’s are also now on Twitter
2) Contact the Arts Council directly, regionally here and nationally here, to express your concern that Sheffield is not receiving its fair share of funding. The Arts Council is also on Twitter, regionally here and nationally here
