I found out recently that the whole fashion department in Liverpool JMU has been, well, effectively deleted. And, as I am lead to believe, has the Geography and Politics departments. A worrying time for us all in the creative industries. It's a well-known secret that the Conservative government are not huge advocates of the arts - the dissolving of the British Arts Council hailed the slippery slope in my opinion - and these new revelations are indicating more is yet to come. Rumours that the Manchester and Salford fashion departments are at risk are also circulating. Only time will tell.


  1. Fashion at JMU has had its new intake for 2011/12 suspended because of some negative feedback from the outgoing year in 2009/10 AND will be back in 2012 - even better! IT IS NOT BECAUSE OF CUTS - Honest!
