Why the cancellation? Many observers were outraged to learn that the series of nine public art events of which "White Trash Curry Kick" was a central part was costing ?12,000 -- in taxpayers money!
[Stitt received ?2,500 from Commissions East, ?2,500 from the Arts Council of Wales and ?7,200 from East of England Arts. Among the other events? Stitt locking himself in a derelict house and remodelling it using stuffed preserved albino animals, crematorium ash cans, vinyl lettering and talcum powder.]
