Arts Council money spent, per head of population in London = £70
Arts Council money spent, per head of population in the rest of the UK = £5.
Arts Council money, or any other funding, spent on exhibitions by our art group The Cobalt Blue = £0.
We are self-funded and occasionally aided by discretionary contributions from visitors to our shows, and sales of art. We don't answer to funding bodies, or institutions. This weekend, we are inviting other collectives from around the Midlands to exhibit with us. We are against cliques and elitism, and we simply want to expose the people of the area to as much great art as we can.
