|Toronto Arts Foundation: CALLING ON ARTS SUPPORTERS
PROTECT TORONTO’S ARTS FUNDING
WRITE YOUR COUNCILLOR!
On November 28, the City Manager presented the 2012 Operating Budget to the City’s Budget Committee. The proposed budget recommends a 10% cut to arts grants. If passed, city arts funding will be reduced by $1.94 million. Clearly, this would affect Toronto’s cultural vitality and reduce or eliminate arts programming including performances, exhibitions, festivals, readings and events that are vital to Toronto residents and visitors. Theatre Direct in support of Toronto Arts Foundation and Friends of the Arts Network are calling on all arts supporters to show their support.
Sign up to make a deputation on December 7 or 8th (deadline December 6) or send a written submission to Budget Committee, firstname.lastname@example.org
The Budget Committee is: (Mike Del Grande, Chair, Michelle Berardinetti, Frank Di Giorgio, Doug Ford, Chin Lee, Peter Milczyn, John Parker).
