From Standing Room Only, 2:32 pm on 1 May 2016

Creative New Zealand's projecting a 10% drop in funds for the arts sector this year, due to a forecast decrease in Lottery Grant Board funding. This has got arts companies worried, with the Basement Theatre organising an advocacy event in the form of a bingo night.
