Durham Restores Funding to Arts Groups

Record #:
Durham City Council recently restored funding to arts groups which had been absent in its preliminary budget. The victory is given to supporters who lobbied to maintain funding that goes to local cultural organizations. The poor economy was one reason the cuts were proposed, but supporters also discuss the negative impact the lack of a policy to support groups has on funding. Currently, there is no department to oversee arts funding in Durham.
