November 20, 2009 A call to action from the Arts Club Theatre
Dear Friend of the Arts,
As you may know, the arts and cultural community in BC is under siege. Organizations large and small are affected.
Here at the Arts Club Theatre Company we feel very strongly that a healthy community has at its core a diverse and engaged arts sector. Presently, that very core is severely threatened. As we have come to understand, the arts will potentially suffer a 90% cut over two years through massive reductions to the BC Arts Council and gaming funds, at a time when no other province has contemplated such a threatening action to the arts sector.
It is critical that we send a message to the provincial government that these cuts are massive, destructive, out of proportion, and unacceptable. It is important that the government hears from you: consumers of culture, donors, and concerned citizens. Please follow the link to easily send a clear message!
Your message will be sent automatically to Premier Gordon Campbell; Kevin Krueger, Minister of Tourism, Culture and the Arts; Rich Coleman, Minister of Housing and Social Development; Colin Hansen, Minister of Finance; and your MLA.
We must have a groundswell of opposition to these drastic cuts in arts and culture funding; please do your part to preserve BC’s strong cultural and arts environment. Thank you.
Artistic Managing Director
