    Abstract

    This is not about money it’s about trust. The money is important, but in cultural policy, funding is first and foremost an expression of trust.

    Because the arts don’t stand apart from society but are an integral part of it, they aren’t exempt from the political fluctuations that determine the allocation of public resources. Put brutally, sometimes companies lose their funding. Sometimes that has to be accepted.
