Plea for help from Stroud International Textiles

An ERTF member has alerted the group to the fact that the very successful Stroud International Textiles (SIT) annual festival and year round programme has an uncertain future. Even though the festival brought in an estimated £150,000 to the area, through tourism, etc, has become a beacon of international excellence within contemporary textiles, supports emerging talent, enhances education, and supports artist led initiatives further support is in severe jeopardy because of funding cuts.

A target of £25,000 is needed by the group by mid-September.
