Censorship of the arts

Political correctness gone mad! I’ve been asked by the Macrobert arts centre in Stirling to remove a hashtag because it might reflect badly on them. It refers to a cartoon drawn by a member of my mud workshop of Cameron and a pig.

Are they devoid of a sense of humour? Whatever happened to artistic freedom of expression?  

What’s more this workshop forms part of Luminate Scotland’s festival for Creative Ageing- not that you would know that in the Macrobert arts centre.

I asked if they might give our workshop, which was highly successful, some publicity- and was told to do it myself!
