Campaigners have called for craft exhibitions to be reintroduced at Hove Museum.
A petition signed by 25 people will be presented to Conservative councillor David Smith, cabinet member for culture at Brighton and Hove City Council, at a meeting at 4pm tomorrow (Tuesday 15 June).
The campaigners say the city should do more to showcase the museum’s success as one of only three in the country with a craft collection.
The petition reads: “We the undersigned petition the council to reinstate temporary craft exhibitions at Hove Museum.
“Hove Museum holds one of only three craft collections in the country.
“That temporary exhibitions are to cease at Hove is a great loss to the community and to a city with a strong cultural ethos.
“The exhibitions and related activities inspire creativity at a time when many people have increased leisure time, often against their will.
“Craft is one of the more accessible of the arts and can be challenging, beautiful and humerous.
“This issue needs to be addressed urgently in order to prevent the exhibition space falling into disuse.”
