#FutureOfLIVE Town Hall
June 12 @ 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT
It has been two months since the federal budget and, already, we are hearing news of CAPF (and BCAH) clients being notified of funding cuts. In the case of the CAPF, reported cuts are as much as 50%.
This can’t be it. We can’t accept that the live presenting sector will do away with $15 million per year, when it actually needs fresh investments to fully contribute to the vitality of the live performance ecosystem, to the wellbeing of Canadian communities, and to the visitor economy. Festivals and presenting organizations need it. Touring artists and agents need it. Audiences need it.
Members of all live performance associations and presenting networks are invited to a #FutureOfLIVE Town Hall on June 12th, at 4:00 p.m. (EDT). Together, we will lay out plans for the advocacy campaign that will shift the tide.
The town hall will be facilitated in English and in French. Simultaneous interpretation will be available.
