The central conservative truth is that culture, not politics, determines the success of a society.
The central liberal truth is that politics can change a culture and save it from itself.–Daniel Patrick Moynihan
These are important words to remember as you make your submission–in person, on line, by mail–to Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services. This is all happening RIGHT NOW, so don’t delay. Let them know that you want the funding to the arts to increase. AABC is asking that funding to the BC Arts Council be doubled during the next two years. We also want to emphasize the importance of cultural tourism, a great opportunty that government has not been supporting.
Don’t forget our DRAFT CULTURAL POLICY FOR BC. Ask that they consider this and include it in their report.
Make arts and election issue!
