This week’s news story: Arts group attacked by artists
changed to the alternative: Artists attack bias in funding decisions
A group of Scottish musicians, artists and writers has written a strongly worded letter to the main funding body for the arts in Scotland, in which they raise concerns about the choices made when deciding on which groups will receive support. They claim that worthwhile artistic endeavours which would bring education and business into certain areas of the country are being overlooked in favour of projects that would appear to have little merit or in some cases would actually cause offence. Creative Scotland, the body at the centre of the complaints, has responded that the allegations will be fully investigated.
