Where is the debate? Well here is an idea, why don't all those hip hop dance/theatre platforms, where artists say they are politically engaged and not engrossed and subjugated by 'the industry', invite activists like Ishmahil Blagrove to speak about working outside of the UK media, and government formulated creative industries? Or just to share undocumented experiences of real UK history. Just a thought...........the debate is long overdue! Jumping through funding hoops or subjugating agency and voice under NPO prerogatives has made many artists lazy and apolitical: scared to bite the hand that feeds them, or that doesn't but might.
