friends forwarded this initiative against the cuts in the netherlands: 






Please forward !

                                ARTBOMB - JOIN THE GROWING
INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY IN AN ACTION TO SAVE THE ARTS Dear art friend,
Express the value of art! Show your support for culture!
                               

                On Friday the 24th June at noon local time, we need
you to join this initiative in shrouding art locations across the
world incoloured smoke. This visual act will be a sign of resistance
against the growing disdain for the arts within societies and
governments worldwide, and a sign of support for colleagues who face
major cutbacks. Now is the time to act to show your appreciation and
the necessity of the arts!

                ARTBOMB is a peaceful art intervention initiated in
The Netherlands. The Dutch Government is about to cut 40% of all
cultural funding. This will result in the disappearance of a multitude
of organizations that excel internationally in their field. This loss
will be felt not only by the Dutch public but by the international
community.

                One signal, one moment, one act to show support. You
can contribute visual ammunition against the disproportionate cuts to
the arts budget. This visible intervention will rise up around the
world where people value the arts and want to express their support
for artists and cultural organizations.

                Everybody who joins the ARTBOMB intervention will
become part of this chain reaction and is invited to upload the photos
and films of their own intervention to the website www.artbomb.nl
<http://www.artbomb.nl/> as a token of solidarity and a symbol of
strength.
