Canadians, presenters, agents and researchers agree on this: arts presentation provides a wide range of benefits. By bringing energy and vitality to communities and strengthening sense of pride and identity (to name a few), performing arts presentation contributes to a better quality of life in a more creative society.
These benefits, and several others, are highlighted in the Interim Report of Findings. Additionally, the report presents a profile of the presenting sector as a whole and singles out how several groups of presenters are distinct; for instance, those presenting works for aboriginal communities, francophone minority (those operating outside Quebec) and those in rural and remote communities.
Over the next year, the Value of Presenting project will continue to explore the implications of these and other findings with the presenting field across Canada.
