Art is a cultural nesessity.It helps to express ourselves , to improve eductaion , to regenrate cities , to empower poor and offcourse to enlighten the society on day to day issues.Every day , each one of us is influenced by art .The clothes and the shoes that we wear, televison , jewelleries ,and various other things , were made by the people who were educated in Arts.Dramas , theatre groups performance lifts our minds and heart .They are a means to serve humanity.It is just arts that remain after a civilization vanishes .It is through arts that we know about all those people.Since arts is such an important part of any country , it is necessary for government to fund it.
Some would quickly argue that , it should not be governments responsibility to fund arts? the taxes that the government will b allocating to arts , should be used to keep the streets safe and lights On.It could be used to improve the current education system which is a nations priority.Many countries does not even have the expense to take care of the daily necessities of their population , in such cases it is impossible to fund arts .In such cases ,satisfying the daily need is much more important than wastin money on a subjective merit.

Though government funding is essential , it brings with it , several provisons , which are disastrous .When government starts funding , it demands censorship on the art form.Some times , the artists have to write the content to appease the government.Art is used as a tool to revolt against injustice , against a political system, by giving in to the government handling of the art form , it defeats the very purpose of freedom of speech . Also , it is the government that determines , which projects to funf and which not to.It seems unreasonable to have government decide , what people will love to see.The objective comparing the subjective is counter- intuitive.
While the government funding is very essential , it should be left to the people , what kind of art form they want to see.The government should not intervene between day to day work of these art groups , giving them freedom to express themselves freely and hence helping art to survive.
