Cultural officers work hard

Your story headlined NCF failure was a very interesting piece with a lot of truth. I was a bit put off by the title but it did get my attention. My hope is that Andrew Senior spoke to some of the practitioners himself so that his findings would be complete.

I can tell you for a fact the cultural officers work extremely hard. Far more goes on beyond Crop-Over all year round. As an artist, I’m seeing some innovative things happening of late. If the NCF weren’t so linked to governmental whims, things could be a bit different.

I also found it intriguing that my first read of this is in a publication that doesn’t pay contributors – part of the solution or problem? (Hope I’m wrong and this has changed by now!)
