COMMITTEE FOR CULTURE, ARTS AND LEISURE:
LAUNCH OF REPORT ON ARTS FUNDING IN NORTHERN IRELAND
The Committee for Culture, Arts and Leisure is holding a musical event on 24 November 2009 at 1pm in the Long Gallery to launch a report of an inquiry into arts funding in Northern Ireland.
The event will showcase a range of local talent, including performers from the traditional Irish music scene, musicians from the Ulster Scots tradition and a fusion band incorporating Indian, African, Polish and Irish sounds.
The purpose of the Report was to look at arts funding in Northern Ireland and other European regions, examine the way that public funding for the arts is allocated and to make recommendations to the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure and other public bodies on the future shape of arts funding.
There will be opportunities for interviews with Members of the Committee, performers and guests.
