This event is a great opportunity for artists, arts managers and board members of arts organizations across the country to meet with Members of Parliament. It’s our opportunity to bring arts advocates from across the country together to collectively to speak to federal stakeholders and to talk with them about the value that the arts bring to Canadian communities. Arts Day on the Hill is one of our most successful ways to engage parliamentarians and get their support on specific Coalition requests.
With the election of a majority Liberal government and the announcement of significantly increased funding to the Canada Council for the Arts last fall, it might seem like the need isn’t as great for Arts Day this year. But it’s especially in times of plenty that it becomes important to meet with our government representatives, to build a positive relationship with them and to share with them the value our organizations bring to life in Canada. Artists and Parliamentarians have much to accomplish together in the next four years. We invite you to join the momentum on Parliament Hill for renewed support for artists across the country!
