There’s an opportunity to get involved in signing a petition to help to save the UEA music department from closing here. The campaign is gathering momentum. Of course, there are loads of unanswered questions. For example, how was the School of Music allowed to get to this point? Don’t appropriate checks and balances exist in the University to foresee this kind of problem?
Perhaps the biggest question is to do with a recognition of the benefits of having a good university within our community. How much do we value the cultural sector in Norfolk/Norwich? For the moment though, the urgency is to get behind the campaign supporting the principle of the UEA continuing to have a music department.
