Noorderlicht continues to fight for survival!

The Cultural Council of The Netherlands recently advised the Dutch Government to cut the financial support to Noorderlicht after 2012. For Noorderlicht the consequences are nothing less than disastrous.

Noorderlicht has made an official appeal against the negative advise of the Cultural Council. On July 13, the Council will react to this appeal.
