Save our courses: Eden Place Arts Centre, Derry sign now

We the users of Eden Place Arts Centre, Derry, demand that the Arts Council of Northern Ireland restore funding for our arts courses.
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 the other groups have had their funding reduced, Eden Place has had theirs WIPED! This will mean we can no longer afford to offer courses to the local community.

Eden Place is the longest standing community Arts Centre in the Bogside, an area which is also home to the People's Gallery, created by the Bogside Artists and supported and inspired by local people and their shared history. The centre offers a yearly programme of art courses on a term time basis and caters for all ages and abilities. It also supports up and coming artist and established artists by providing the equipment, expertise and encouragement to learn and a platform to showcase their work.

At a time of economic instability such an outlet as this becomes more not less valuable. We deserve better.
