Fund our courses sign now

We demand that the Arts Council for Northern Ireland renew funding for arts courses at Eden Place Arts Centre, Derry.

On Tues 2nd March 2010, Eden Place Arts Centre received a letter from the arts council for Northern Ireland to say that they would not be renewing their funding effective from the 31st March 2010. A number of other groups have had their funding reduced, Eden Place has had theirs WIPED. This means we will not be able to afford to run our courses.

Eden Place is the longest standing community Arts Centre in Derry's Bogside. It offers a yearly programme of art courses on a term time basis and caters for all ages and abilities within the community. It also supports up and coming artist and established artists by providing equipment, encouragement and expertise as well as a platform to showcase work.

At times of economic instability such outlets become more not less valuable. And in the words of a local six year old who uses the centre 'how are children meant to learn art if no-one can teach us?'

We deserve better.....
