CALLING ALL ARTISTS, COLLEAGUES AND ATTENDEES OF INTERCULTURAL ARTS ACTIVITY
Your opinions matter to Intercultual Arts. Alot. Without our artists, technicians, colleagues, partners, regional networks, associates and audiences, we wouldn't be able to offer BME arts development in the region. So...We are asking for short (or as long as you like) statements about how you have found working with, being part of, or attending any of our activities.
Please send your thoughts by Mon 8 Nov, 12pm mid-day with email subject title 'ICA endorsements and opinions'.
Please be as open and honest as possible and we will use this feedback in our AGM on Wed 17 Nov @ Dance City (More details about the AGM coming soon!)

Save the Arts
The Prime Minister David Cameron has said that any petition reaching 100,000 signatures would guarantee a Commons debate on the matter. The arts is under extreme threat, I would be really grateful if you could sign the petition (click below) to at least get this debated in the commons. Thanks for reading and thanks to those of you who sign.
Radical cuts to current levels of arts funding will decimate what has been one of the UK's chief success stories over the past 20 years, and will bring an end to the UK's reign as a global capital for culture.
Arts organisations all accept the need to reduce their budgets. But while the arts can possibly sustain a ten percent funding cut, the 25-30% cuts that the government is currently considering would result in the closure of many smaller arts organizations and would also have a crippling effect on the functioning of the country’s leading arts venues.
The arts are a major employer, and they generate far more revenue than they cost to fund. In addition they are a major attraction for tourism in the UK. While cutting arts funding may save money in the short term, in the long run it risks undermining what has been one of the country’s most vibrant areas of growth over the past fifteen years, and destroying one of the national achievements that we should be most proud of.
It has taken 50 years to create a vibrant arts culture in Britain that is the envy of the world.
We the undersigned appeal to the government not to slash arts funding and risk destroying this long-term achievement and the social and economic benefits it brings to all.
Fouad made a new film. The film is called "untitled". It was released this week and its already a success
"It left a lump in my throat, (to me) this is a nice poem"
"Life changes - a few seconds in which the world becomes a completely different place and we are never the same again."
"...a poignant and moving video"
"that was intense!..."
"A profoundly moving piece from the heart"
"that is beautiful!"
Its a brief moment in the life of a 5 year old girl
The music was origially featured in the Oscar winner film "The Piano" and it was donated by the composer Mr Michael Nyman
