Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence


Memorandum submitted by Northern Arts

  I write to submit evidence from Northern Arts Board to the Select Committee hearing on the Arts Council Review. It's widely known that Northern Arts and the majority of arts organisations in the Country were opposed to the proposals for a single organisation. We remain unconvinced by the benefits of the restructure as we run an effective regional service which is highly valued by our customers. We are, however, working constructively to ensure that the proposals are improved prior to taking a decision on whether to agree to a merger with the Arts Council.

  The attached document is already on the public record and I have been asked by Northern Arts' Board Members to submit it as evidence to the Select Committee.
