The Newsletter says it was over a hundred strong protest outside the Ormeau Baths Gallery yesterday, but from this photo from Carisenda, it looks like more. Liz Kennedy reports: “any in the crowd who were grant assisted by ACNI were reluctant to give their names to the press, but voiced anger and shock at what was perceived as “high-handed” action by the funding body.
Others noted that ACNI had declared a number of reasons for the closure of the gallery, including unsustainability and loss of confidence in the management, but were deemed to have provided little evidence for those claims”.
