ART=WORK SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE ARTS IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR

On Tuesday April 9, 2013 an important community meeting entitled ART=WORK was co-organized by Eastern Edge Gallery and Visual Artists Newfoundland and Labrador (VANL-CARFAC).

Over 90 amazing voices were represented including artists, arts professionals, volunteers, advocates, business leaders, and residents of Newfoundland and Labrador.

We came together through our shared disappointment of the recent provincial cuts and see this petition as a beginning of a new conversation to make clear the value of the arts which is proven time and time again to be a good and solid investment.

Investing in the arts is also an investment in our peoples' well-being, our history and our culture: the presentation of our stories on the world stage fosters representation of our distinct local culture in a time of increased globalization and pressure. All this, while providing a high quality of life for our citizens here at home. For what is a community without its culture? These cuts come at a time when new possibilities for growth have appeared.

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE ARTS IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR

You can also watch and listen to the entire ART = WORK meeting on video.
