“Cuts to museums, libraries and other cultural services are unpalatable – we must resist them in favour of imaginative alternative solutions. Our call, to government and councils, is to recognise that cultural services can help communities recover from the impact of the recession." Sir Andrew Motion said today. “But financial difficulties will bring change whether we like it or not – those delivering the service must not be left unsupported with less cash and limited choices. That is why the MLA has today published Sharper Investment for Changing Times.
