À propos

The « Show Culture Some Love » campaign was launched by the PCS union (Public & Commercial Sector) and the CLIC (Creative & Leisure Industries Committee) of the Southern & Eastern Region of the TUC’s (SERTUC) at a conference on « the future of arts & culture ».

It’s main aims are to campaign for an end to the cuts in arts & culture budgets caused by the pro-austerity policies of the current government and to make the case for greater investment.

As part of this campaign, supporters are asked to contact the candidates standing as parliamentary candidates in the constituency in which they live to secure support for some pledges related to arts & culture.

The pledges are:

PLEDGE 1

To protect and expand public funding for arts & culture

PLEDGE 2

To make sure public funding for arts & culture
meets the condition of minimum standards of pay and employment

PLEDGE 3

To ensure transparency of any sponsorship in arts & culture and to promote ethical policies in cultural institutions

PLEDGE 4

To promote democratic accountability in publicly funded cultural bodies and investigate corporate interests present on governing bodies

PLEDGE 5

To ensure the funding and promote the role of art education in society, including free access to education

PLEDGE 6

To tackle inequalities of access to arts & culture and its funding and to develop a socially progressive arts policy
