From the mouths of babes

Sadly, despite all the screaming we did on Saturday, no change in the government’s iron decision to cut funds for culture. Maybe they’d change their mind if they saw this speech which nearly made me cry on Saturday. Because Sep, only 9 years old, delivering his first public speech, told us why culture and expression is an absolutely essential factor of our human condition. The wise masters say we are spiritual beings having a human experience. And sometimes our mere humanness climbs amazing heights if we can use art to help us live it.

In Eindhoven, the Netherlands we screamed for culture, against funding cuts and tax hikes on Saturday 20 November, but if you really love and live culture, then you might scream a little bit for it every day.

In Eindhoven, we screamed for culture with full force
