"Cancelled Due To Total Lack of Funding"

On Vacuum Days:

CANCELLED DUE TO TOTAL LACK OF FUNDING

*

IN THE BASEMENT
A MASSIVE MACHINERY OF REPRESSION,
CONTROL & SUBJUGATION
DECORATED WITH FLAGS, BALLOONS
& HOMEMADE BUNTING

OUTSIDE
Asstd. Directors & Managers of Arts Organisations Perform Pathetic Pseudo-Victorian Dances of Faux Gratitude
Fawning, Bowing, Slobbering & Scraping the Cobblestones With Their Filthy Caps
as Tourists Look On in Delight, Throwing Coins at the Capering Artists
‘Gawd Bless Yew All Kinde Genlemen, We Are Evrr,
Evver So Gwateful for Yr Patronage’
& Etc.


This is, of course, about the massive Arts Council cuts that will affect all kinds of people in the UK, which - since they funding at all - they're naturally upset about. 

I'm just wondering what funding sources we have in India that's comparable. I also want an agency towards which I can direct my indignation.

They should have just put the National Theatre up for sale. That way, ACE could have saved everything else.
