“I acknowledge that this is a difficult time for the sector. In addition to the difficult decisions on grant funding that this council and other local authorities are having to make, Arts Council England funding has been slashed by 30% since 2010.

“However, I am wholeheartedly committed to working collaboratively with our partners across the region to bring new funding into our city to support our diverse creative arts and culture scene.”
