Ok, so many of you may not already be familiar with CCNOA (Center for Contemporary Non Objective Art) in Brussels, Belgium, but for those of you who are, they need our support. I have long been a fan of CCNOA for their unique niche and focused exhibitions. They have long been a champion for non-objective art, something I very much support. Well, now they are on the brink of having their funding cut which would force them to close. Find out all about CCNOA here.
We have just received preliminary notification (pre-advies) of the intention of the Vlaamse Gemeenschap to discontinue structural funding for CCNOA as of 31 December 2009. Without this subsidy it will be impossible for us to continue operating. After more than 10 years of commitment and a continuously expanding programme CCNOA will be obliged to close its doors. We have ten (10) working days in which to appeal. Please react, send us a short note of support which we will attach to our response to the Flemish Minister of Culture Bert Anciaux and his advisory committee, come back to write some more, spread the word and many many thanks for your support!LEND YOUR SUPPORT TO CCNOA HERE.
