Today saw the drafts of letters to Minister Jimmy Deenihan and Minster Joan Burton finalised and dispatched.

The letters covered: the Tax Exemption Ceiling and a balancing of payments that was dropped from the Finance Bill when amendments were stopped at the end of the last Dáil; the realities of Social Welfare and the professional visual artist; Cultural Sector Staffing Deficits & Cultural Workers Unemployment levels; the legislating of the Drôite de suite and forthcoming obligation for the heirs of artists; as well as developing on an idea put forward by VAI CEO Noel Kelly at a meeting with representatives of the previous government about the creation of a Cultural Sector Partnership – a forum that will allow cultural organisations work closely with the Department in the development of cultural strategies and forming policies for government.
