“It came as a huge shock to the region’s art lovers when Manchester’s highly respected Castlefield Gallery failed to win Arts Council funding last year. Kate Feld talks to Director Kwong Lee about what’s happening now.”

Lee talks about a future without the Arts Council (the article says that “The gallery wasn’t snubbed for artistic reasons, but failed to meet strict criteria about funding sources – essentially, it was too dependent on ACE funding alone.” An interesting chicken-and-egg situation…), advocating for art and artists, and keeping the place alive in general.
