Dear Netbehaviour

Many of you will have seen the open letter to ACE (Arts Council England)
that is being circulated for signatures. It is a positive letter calling for
a dialogue about the current and future development of digital arts practice
in UK and consequently in terms of its position internationally. As you may
be aware there have been considerable cuts to arts funding in England and
digital arts seems to have been hit particularly hard by this process.

A debate leading up to the letter has developed on a google group:

Digital arts organisations and artists in UK have been part of an effective
international network and we would like to be able to continue this work
with strong support, both funding and advocacy, from Arts Council England.
If you feel able to sign the letter please do:

Thanks in advance.

All best wishes
