Arts Council funding cuts: the debate

25th January 2008



Josie Rourke, artistic director of the Bush theatre, and Sam Walters, artistic director of the Orange Tree theatre, join the critics Robert Hewison – also representing the National Student Drama Festival – and Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard) to discuss the funding threats facing the sector. Dominic Cavendish hosts. Recorded at Dewynters, London.

No one would reasonably dispute the Arts Council’s right to make choices and cuts – but it needs to be done properly.
