Please click here to sign our petition against the eviction of the creative enterprises at 175-179 Wollaton Street and to ask council leader Jon Collins some questions about why our situation has been ignored for so long.
Ironic that the council should use one of our artist’s projects as a reason to ‘invest in Nottingham’ while offering no support in Kate’s relocation so that she can continue to bring money into the city.
This campaign aims to identfiy the loss caused by government cuts to the arts and creative sectors. The map function allows you to see the funding cuts by area and the organisations that have suffered.
And here is a response piece to Johal’s piece about the Creative Quarter from Glenn Crocker. Exempting Crocker’s clear conflict of interest we do agree with his statement that ‘The council should clear the path so that people can do their own thing without hindrance.’ If this is his honest opinion, why then plug the companies that have benefitted from public sector funding, including his own and the already-funded-to-the-hilt Antenna Media Centre, while ignoring those smaller enterprises, like ours, who have been doing well over the years with no recourse to the public purse?
Here’s a piece run by the Evening Post, which echoes most of our opinions on the way the Creative Quarter is being handled: http://www.thisisnottingham.co.uk/quot-Creative-quarter-creative-quarter-quot-says/story-19650414-detail/story.html#axzz2dSJcOj3x
