Dance Against The Deficit Lies – Having it Peaceful
Outside the Bank of England, London
14th January 2010 · 13:00 – 14:00
We are staging a one hour showcase celebration of the arts to draw attention to the deceptive manner in which the government is using the deficit and the national debt as a false licence to withdraw funding from some of the things that as a nation we collectively hold most dear.
Government cuts are at risk of making The Arts something which only the wealthy can participate in, study, watch and love. By peaceful demonstration we wish to highlight what a valuable asset The Arts are to our culture – and how much richer we are as individuals and as a people because of them.
The demonstration will be a display of dancers, stilt walkers, acrobats, drag artistes, painters and singers. Those not artistic in nature but with an appreciation of The Arts will bring headphones and have their own silent disco. London’s most vibrant free show this January will last for one hour, at which point the demonstration will disperse peacefully – highlighting the lack of need for police containment tactics used at recent protests.
We look forward to dancing with you.
