ADVOCACY AND PERSISTENCE WORK !
After extensive lobbying with members of or Arts Advisory Committee for an increase in arts project funding at the City of St. John’s, I successfully won my motion in Council’s deliberation.
Council has now agreed to an extra $0.50 per capita =
$1.50/capita for 2012, with an increase to $1.75 per capita in 2013 and to $2.00 per capita in 2014.
As one of North America’s most vibrant cultural communities, I am am a firm believer that we need to support our dynamic cultural and creative economy producers, if we are to be successful on the International stage.
