If you live in Salisbury you'll already know that Salisbury Arts centre has been in the news of late, for all the wrong reasons. In fact it's just one reason. Its funding has been cut. Ok ok ok, so times are hard and we have to prioritise. But I'm inclined to agree with Churchill, when he was asked if arts funding should be cut during the war he simply replied "Then what are we fighting for?" But if there really are more important things for the council to fund, then it's down to us to support the arts anyway we can.
I think, the very best way to support the Salisbury Arts Centre is; turn up.
That's right, just go there. Don't stay at home and moan, go and support it. There's something for everyone. I'm not employed by the arts centre, but I have to come clean here and say I have more than a soft spot for that place. Throughout my teens and sixth form years I went to gigs, went to the café, and we had our Leavers ball there (we didn't do proms then!) I've been to late night cult movie shows, exhibitions, incredible theatre, pre-Edinburgh stand-up. I've been to new year's eves, life drawing, and four years ago had my husband and I had our Wedding reception there!
So go. Seriously go there. It's great. If you're into art, go to their exhibitions or Dr Sketchy's alternative life drawing once per month or sign up for that creative workshop you've always wanted to do. If you're into music, go to the Alter Club or see the highest quality world music, and some great local bands too. Wanna join in? Go to the open mic nights. You're into theatre and Dance? They have live performances regularly, you're into Film, there's some of the very best independent, cult and stunning films shown here too, How about some amazing talks from politics to war, from war to travel. If you're into beer, then go to Beerex beer festival!
Seriously there really is something for everyone. The arts centre does more outreach work than the average organisation too, they have family fun days, children's workshops, café LUA.
Lets not let this wonderful, arts centre fade away just because times are a bit harder than we'd like. Very often tickets for events here come in less expensive than going to the cinema for instance. You can become a member and get even more discounts!
