This is a repost (with permission) of Martyn Reed’s powerful recent post on Facebook. Reflecting at first upon Nuart’s recent struggle with Stavanger authorities to overturn a decision to significantly reduce funding for the globally important Street Art festival, Martyn calls for artists of all kinds to organise together collectively as a radical act so that we create the changes needed in our post-Covid lives. His writing is inspiring and honest – something we can all learn from.
Martyn Reed describes himself (on Facebook at least) as an ambivalent curator, writer, researcher, artist/producer and a specialist in event mismanagement. He is founder of Nuart Festival, Nuart Journal and Numusic.
