What Are We Missing?! – Part 6

Are you excited to experience life in Vancouver in a completely new way through Leave of Absence?  Are you looking forward to taking your niece to see Tough and open up an important conversation?  Do you want to know what adventure Radix Theatre is dreaming up next?

The British Columbia government has robbed you of this.  All of this has been taken from all of us, the audience.  These are the things the government is stopping you from having by cutting arts investments and by withdrawing the commitment of Gaming funds for Arts and Culture.

This is what you are missing.

DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING ELSE TO TELL US?  ANOTHER EXCITING IDEA THAT WE WON’T GET TO SEE BECAUSE OUR LIBERAL GOVERNMENT THINKS WE’VE HAD ENOUGH ART FOR A WHILE?  POST IT BELOW.

Join the movement in any number of ways.  Have your say by commenting on any of the above links – we’ll make sure the government hears what you tell us.  Or visit www.allianceforarts.com to find out how to get involved.

The fight isn’t over.

Now you know what you are fighting for.

Assembled by Rachel Peake.

  1. Great newsletter, Diana. We too are feeling the pinch in a big bad way. We did indeed fulfill all our contracts last year, presenting almost 50 performances of 3 different shows in over 30 communities. We toured to two new markets (Saskatchewan and Ontario) opening up possibilities for the future and yet what we came home to is a great big debt. We stripped our presenting activities this year down to a mini 4 show tour this summer and hope to attend a showcase and that’s it. The future is uncertain. Pretty shitty place to be after almost 18 years of presenting. . . We’re trying to get the word out, too. Keep me posted.
    Thanks, Renee
