STOP CUTTING FUNDS FOR THE ARTS!
I am one, amongst many others, whom wish for a future in the arts. I'm currently studying Musical Theatre at a pre-vocational school Birmingham Ormiston Academy, that specialise in the arts. I hope in two years time, to gain a place at vocational school down in London. I speak for myself, and many others saying that arts cuts seriously need to stop. Every week there's something about cuts on the news and it's not fair. My school are to suffer cuts financially also according to the Birmingham Mail.
By the time I get to hopefully go to vocational school in two years time wonder if they'll even be any funding for me or I've got to magic the money up myself with help from my family. Does this mean only kids with the 'big money' to find themselves get to go to study musical theatre and gain a degree? I, for one, hope to make a career from musical theatre and wish to perform on the west end in the future. I pray that by the time it's my turn- theatre is still as big and fun loved as it is today and the government begin to consider people like myself who want to do this. I deserve just as much funding as anyone doing anything else and my funding shouldn't be any lower or different than someone who got the opportunity for vocational school in 2013 than I will in 2017 or whenever I gain a place from their onwards. No matter what financial problems we are in as a country, start cutting some other things and not using the arts as your only option of cuts.
In short, STOP CUTTING ARTS FUNDS!
