As you know, on Tuesday, May 14, 2013 British Columbians will go to the polls. Are the arts a priority for this election's candidates?
"Arts Vote" is a non-partisan, grassroots social media movement everywhere elections are happening. Initially activated in some Canadian municipal elections, its purpose is to keep arts and culture on the agenda of election campaigns and increase voter turnout among arts supporters.
Our provincial version, ArtsVoteBC, is hosted by Arts Coalition BC but driven by the community through Twitter. Please join the conversation! Included on the website is a helpful ArtsVoteBC Twitter primer and other tools to assist you in getting involved in the discussion.
Follow @ArtsVoteBC on Twitter and use the following hashtags when sharing pertinent news, information, and resources: #artsvoteBC #BCpoli #BCelxn #[your riding tag].
Most importantly, get out to the polls and VOTE!
