London 2012 Olympics to drain Arts Funding

Please take a moment to oppose the unprecedented 35% cut in arts funding, and stop the chancellor using Lottery money to plug the funding gap in the 2012 Olympics. If this goes ahead at least 剣900m will go from Big lottery, Sport England, Arts Council and Heritage Lottery.

This will affect all those working in the arts, and their audiences. Much of this money would fund projects within the local voluntary and community sector. Services to disadvantaged people will be directly affected by the loss of this funding, people who will have no opportunity to benefit from the Olympics directly but rely on local services provided by the voluntary sector.
