The evil of Arts Grants

Loadedog is a little miffed that he missed out on an arts grant this year.

He goes on to have a look at the sort of stuff which did win the right to suckle on your dollars, and express his indignation with the whole process.

It’s well worth a read.

While my podcasting comrade is a little conflicted (being an unsuccessful candidate) I would like to say that, while being very glad for the winners who’ll be getting some easy money, I think we’d get a better process by picking random people off the street and letting them select items for funding out of the applicant pool.

At least then we’d know it’s a total crap shoot.
