You kept that quiet! Resident Advisor publishes list of grants available to creatives – but make no mention of THEIR £750k bailout from 6 months ago

The British taxpayer funded Resident Advisor was in a charitable mood yesterday. It’s at times like this that the internet comes into its own – for it allows you to be charitable without actually spending a penny of your own money.

It was in that spirit, presumably, that they published an article yesterday all about where “musicians and creatives” could apply for grants and loans if they were in any pandemic induced troubles.

It’s at this point that the British taxpayer funded Resident Advisor start being – and there’s no other way to put this, frankly – downright disingenuous. They make a vague reference to their bailout last year from early on…

“We remain grateful for the support we’ve received and would like to guide others.”

If the British taxpayer funded Resident Advisor are fans of the Bible, it appears they’ve misunderstood Luke 3:10-11. For it reads…

“What should we do then?’ the crowd asked. John answered, ‘Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same’.”

That involves putting your hand in your pocket to help someone, British taxpayer funded Resident Advisor. Not telling them whose pocket they can pick for the money…

Putting ecumenical matters aside, the article starts with the British list of places to go for some wonga. They’re based in London, so the UK focus makes sense. However, note the interesting wording when they get to Arts Council England…

“Arts Council England is offering National Lottery Project Grants of between £1,000 and £100,000 to individual artists and community and cultural organisations.”

Is this the same Arts Council England that gave the British taxpayer funded Resident Advisor £750,000 last October? Yes, it’s the very same one.

You’d almost think that the British taxpayer funded Resident Advisor was a little bit embarrassed about their status, given how terribly coy they’re being about it…
