Local Government Sustaining the Arts: an Oxymoron for Heretics

Local government in England invests more in the arts than the Arts Council. In November 2015, the Comprehensive Spending Review saw funding to local government fall by a further 24%. Councils have to make difficult decisions. How is local government support for the arts changing? What will the future look like? Carole Stewart, Assistant Director of Arts Heritage and Libraries at London Borough of Ealing will explore the changes and the ways in which councils are responding to the choices in funding and sustainability for the arts.
