Crippen R.I.P cartoon – 23rd January 08

Zoom in to this image and read text description

This cartoon is linked to our Editor’s blog and relates to the devastating cuts in Arts Council funding for 2008. This has a direct impact on both the National Disability Arts Forum (NDAF) and the London Disability Arts Forum (LDAF) who, subject to appeal, will close in April.

Colin Hambrook sums it up far more eloquently in his blog (just click on the blogs link across on the right to find the link for the Editor’s blog ). Don´t forget, you can have your say about any of the issues portrayed by Crippen by scrolling down to the comments box at the end.
