On Thursday morning I had my final catch-up meeting with Louise de Winter at the National Campaign for the Arts. Louise leaves NCA at the end of next week and will be a big loss to the arts sector. Our final discussions included the Giving green paper, the philanthropy review by Tom Hughes Hallet ( and the Northern Ireland Comprehensive Spending Review announcement. In announcing improvements in the budget for culture, the Northern Ireland Finance Minister referred to the force of the arguments mustered by the sector and the strength of the case presented – apparently more than 5,000 letters supporting the arts were received in comparison with 78 in support of health!
