Kaleido Arts, the arts organisation which supports deaf and disabled artists, will lose its Arts Council South West funding from March.
Kaleido Arts offers support for disabled and deaf artists, with funding, promotion and networking, while working to improve opportunities and and promote disabled artists.
A Kaleido spokesman said: “Only two per cent of the Arts Council South West arts award funding in 2008/9 went to disabled artists.”
Kaleido is calling for people to help it fight the decision by writing to the Arts Council. Address your letters to Alan Davey, chief executive of the Arts Council, at Arts Council England, 14 Great Peter Street, London, SW1P 3NQ or email chiefexecutive@ artscouncil.org.uk
