The Future Growth and Survival for Art in Canada
As of June/2011Mr. Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of CanadaMr. Jim Flaherty, Minister of FinanceMr. James Moore, Minister of Art & CultureThe following are facts; you may check the evidence by following the attached links.
This past June, I, participated in a forum held by the French Canadian Cultural Federation,
“La Fédération Culturelle Canadienne
Française”, in Ottawa to discuss how artists in
Canada view and foresee the development of the arts and its industry in our country. The forum was brilliant, was very well attended and an abundance of information and suggestions came of it.The issue that stood out for me the most at this forum was
the earnings statistics of artists in Canada and the monies spent by our government to help support this great Canadian enigma called, The Canadian
Most artists’ in Canada are struggling; for
the most part, they are well below the poverty levels due to the lack of support for thearts that exists in our country. I believe I have found a creative and an efficient solutionthat could help our government and the Canadian artist, and so,
this is the reason I’ve
decided to call upon your help.
