The Office for Students has published its university funding plans for next year, which include cutting funding for courses in performing and creative arts in half. The creative arts sector has already been decimated by the pandemic, receiving very little government support despite its importance to our economy and our international stature. Just last year Minister for the Creative Industries, Nigel Adams noted that the creative industries contributed nearly £13 million pounds to the national economy every hour. To cut off the supply of future creative professionals would be a tragic false economy.
The Office for Students is currently running a consultation on their funding proposals for 2021-2022, including the plan to slash funding for arts courses. This consultation closes this Thursday May 6.
