SAC shake-up

The Scottish Arts Council has changed its way of funding theatre companies and other arts organisations. It is putting its money into two pots: one for long-term "foundation" funding; the other for one-off "flexible" grants. The changes will be good news for those granted more stability and, theoretically, for a generation of younger artists. Bad news, though, for Borderline, 7:84 and others, whose regular funding has been withdrawn.
