The arts: “Big Society isn’t working”
• 206 bodies have received 100% funding cuts from Arts Council England
• Those cuts are worth £19.1m – compared to the total funding for 2011/12 of £310.5m
• The biggest group of organisations are in London – 49 of the 206. But London has more arts groups than any other part of the country
‘Is Big Society Working?’ is a public art project that aims to investigate the impact of the government’s budget cuts on real people.
