Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Britain's flagship photography institution will lose 15% in Government grants over the next four years as a result of the Comprehensive Spending Review, Amateur Photographer has revealed.
Last week the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced £81 billion pounds worth of public spending cutbacks.
A spokesman for the National Media Museum (NMM), which is based in Bradford, West Yorkshire told Amateur Photographer today: 'We know that our grant-in-aid will be reduced by around 15% in real terms in stages over the next four years, starting in April.
'We have already been working to prepare for a range of scenarios and to seek efficiencies that can serve to minimise the impact of the cuts. The museum's London presence in not under threat.
'Over the next few weeks we will confirm our plans for accommodating this reduction.'
