Visit unites York and National Gallery campaigns

GalleryThe last 24 hours has seen a 2nd visit to York by a PCS member taking part in what has become all-out strike action at London’s National Gallery. As well as strike fund collections, there were two media calls outside York Art Gallery and a public meeting to discuss austerity’s effects on arts. The meeting showed that there are strong similarities despite the differences in the two campaigns, and the risk of art becoming entirely sealed off for the benefit of economic and cultural elites, or compromised by reliance on big business sponsorship.
