queerupnorth is Europe's leading queer festival - a Manchester institution, the first of its kind in the UK and Europe, and an internationally known producer of queer arts.

Arts Council England proposes to stop funding queerupnorth from April 2008. This would lead to the cancellation of the 2008 festival, the end of our unique programme of work with young people and schools, and an end to our sixteen year history as the most adventurous and creative queer arts & cultural producer in the UK.

If Arts Council England ends its funding, queerupnorth will have to close. If you would like to help us prevent that, please add your name to the petition below.

We, the undersigned, call on Arts Council England to reconsider their recommendation to cut the funding of queerupnorth and recommend instead an inflationary increase in funding from April 2008.

The Petition to save queerupnorth from Arts Council cuts petition to Arts Council England was written by Adam Pushkin and is in the category Arts & Entertainment at GoPetition.
