Advocacy organisation Public Campaign for the Arts has launched a petition calling for the UK government to reconsider plans to cut funding for arts higher education by 50 per cent.

The petition calls for the government to reconsider these plans, and recognise the value of arts subjects in education and society by committing to sustained funding for higher education providers “so they can continue to deliver world-leading arts courses”. At the time this article was written, the petition had been signed by over 66,000 people.
