Letter of Concern from Dr. Maeve Connolly to Arts Council N.I
To Whom it May Concern
I wish to protest at the sudden withdrawal of funding from the Ormeau Baths Gallery. The loss of the Gallery is a very significant blow to the Belfast arts community and to the wider Irish and international arts world.
It is incumbent on the Arts Council to act in a professional manner and in the best interests of the visual arts. A decision like this should not have been taken without extensive and transparent consultation with the arts community.
I look forward to a swift response, explaining the Arts Council's position on this matter.
