Words by Marvin Maddix
London’s Tate Modern Gallery teams up with one of the capitals leading Fashion Institutions, Central Saint Martins to support the arts and the decline of free entry across the arts industry at the hand of budget, grant and government funding cuts in the arts sector.
“Art is increasingly isolated in the school timetable. Creativity is dismissed as peripheral and not included in the proposed Ebacc with preference given to the STEM subjects of science, technology, maths and engineering. Indeed, as pupils feel pressure to study Ebacc subjects we are seeing fewer choosing to study the arts. Outside of school, cuts to local funding puts galleries’ educational and outreach programmes at risk and raises the future possibility of an end to free entry.”
This event is programmed by Central Saint Martins, a Tate Exchange Associate.
