20 nov. Protest Day: NETHERLANDS YELLING FOR CULTURE

http://wp.me/p9f2i-jZ

Flip your website!

DUTCH GOVERNMENT RAISES TAXES ON ARTS: It was 6% , will be 19%!!!

The planned cuts to arts and culture are totally out of balance!

As expected, the VVD, CDA and PVV parties in the Netherlands have agreed to make deep cuts to government arts funding. Their disastrous new coalition agreement slashes the cultural budget by more than 200 million euros.

The new cabinet’s plans directly threaten the continued existence of countless Dutch cultural institutions. These cuts amount to a quarter of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science’s budget which is only 0.5 percent of the total government budget. ( A bit of motorway…) The arts sector will thus receive a disproportionately hard blow. The result will be a drastic longterm worsening of the artistic and cultural climate in the Netherlands.

Sign the petition protesting the cabinet’s plans on the Stop Culturele Kaalslag (‘Stop Cultural Demolition’) website. More than 60,000 people have signed so far.
