We in the SPART Action Group in Northern Ireland are declaring an SPART Strike from January 2009. During this time we will make no Sport/Art hybrid works within Northern Ireland. The SPART strike is in direct response to the UK government’s cuts to lottery funding for the arts and good causes as a result of funding the London 2012 Olympics.

 

SPART Action Group have been contacted by a masked group calling themselves The Society for the Materialisation of a Northern Irish Imagination who have also declared an Art Strike in solidarity with SPART Action Group. However the reasons for The Society for the Materialisation of a Northern Irish Imagination’s Art Strike are very different. Their campaign is a reaction to the utter vacuous sterile boringness of Northern Irish contemporary culture.
