Grave situation in Hungary for independent artists

Dear Friends,

We would like to shortly inform you about the situation in Hungary. The independent theatre and dance companies and venues still didn't receive their yearly state support from the Cultural Ministry (for 2010). The reason is that the government ordered to lock a certain percentage of this support alluding to the general bad financial situation of the country. This means that the organizations working in the field will only receive 66% of the awarded amount. Many organizations have already debts and many are obliged to fire their workers and to give up their projects.

I enclosed a statement of support that we plan to forward to the cultural officials. If you feel like that please sign it and send it back. (You can send it back signed in e-mail or by fax: +3613581005).
Also please forward it to those organizations whom you know were working with Hungarian artists in the past.

As a member of L1 danceLab and L1 Associacion we are also in a difficult situation as our support for 2010 will be about half of the last year's one. However we do our best to survive and to continue our collaboration. There will be a change in the theatre law in this fall. We have to see how will that change the circumstances.

Waiting for your help and reply and wishing you a nice summer time!
