|What do you think about public funding for the arts?
It is a great idea. Competition in the arts is very tough. The public support in arts keeps some of the best artists painting and helps in times of need for artists to continue to work.
I think it should be cut, and put into other public services.
This is a hard call, as an artist I embrace the funding of the arts, but as a human being I’d rather see that no child in this country ever goes to bed hungry at night. I kinda like the old renaissance idea of a “patron” so if there’s any out there…
Great if you can get it, but it can bring castigation if the public don't like it!
It's a good thing but a lot of times it's artist there is hot now an investment and that leavs a lot of great and hard working artist in the dark. I belive that the world would earn on more fokus on artist in general. That way they have an opportunity to se art in different stages.
If this meant financial support (tax breaks; stipends; C.O.L.
allowances etc) for practising artists then it is a good idea...in
theory. Usually, however, the trickle down effect through national
Arts Organisations doesn’t work democratically.
It becomes a political game where artists schmooze the ones that hold the purse strings so they can feast from the public trough.
I believe public funding is in part vital to the survial of the arts...
I think it is great.There is alot of talent out there that without the funding may never shine.
Either that, or making for a living in housekeeping or death of a rich uncle.
A great idea as long as their is some moderation in what gets exhibited where.
Much needed, but usually there is too much concern about profit, so art for art's sake is not given much.
