BANG - Can't manage without Artservis!
Sign the petition.
Artservis is a web-based media and a vital information resource of arts and culture, based on Creative Commons licence policy and free public access. Since 2001 it has been collecting, organizing and disseminating obtainable data and offering artists and cultural operators the up-to-date information on funding sources, educational programs and participation opportunities focused on art and culture.
In its seven years of operation, it has become an indispensable tool for international co-operation in the field of arts and culture - a reliable and referential media not only for the individual cultural workers, and non-governmental organisations but also for public institutions, foreign cultural centres and foundations, consulates and embassies as well as numerous governmental services (in Slovenia and abroad).
Despite its evident significance and efficiency, Artservis has always been confronting a lack of understanding from state and international founding sources and has not succeeded in getting a more stable financing mechanism. This situation has reached its culmination in 2008, after a gradual yearly backdrop of its activities due to insufficient funding and other unfavourable circumstances.
Initiative of Artservis users for its protection is asking you to sign the on-line petition and support Artservis.
