Lost Arts – The effect of Goverment Cuts

Lost Arts is a website set up by 8 Unions representing people working in the creative sector. The purpose of the site is to record the amount of money lost to the Arts as a result of Government cuts – and the amount lost to the economy as a whole. If you or your organisation has been affected by the cuts then you can record your story on the site and add to the ‘totalizer’ of losses. 

You can visit the site at http://www.lost-arts.org/

The Unions backing the site are the Musicians Union, Equity, BECTU, the Writers Guild of Great Britain, the National Union of Journalists (NUJ), UNITE, Prospect and PCS.

Managing Director

Jonathan trained as a chartered accountant with Price Waterhouse (now PWC) in Liverpool before becoming a small business services manager for Grant Thornton in Warrington. He also spent three years as the financial controller for Brookside and Hollyoaks (not that he ever mentions it!).

Jonathan is recognised as a specialist in the entertainment industry and is often called upon to provide training courses and seminars for media professionals. He's also a bit of a technology geek and has been recognised with the accountancy industry as one of the most progressive accountants in the UK.
Outside of work Jonathan is very proud to be the Treasurer of the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace and to be on the Council of the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA)
