Thanks to everyone who participated in the Arts Summit last week. We believe that important ideas and some practical action plans were discussed and hatched. It was great to see everyone who turned out; there were so many arts leaders in the house. Special thanks to Arlene Goldbard for her keynote and workshop. We look forward to sharing the text with our members as soon as we can. It was great to see Spencer Chandra Herbert attend this event and we regret not being able to convene a provincial panel, but Minister Krueger was not available. We know that Spencer Chandra Herbert is a strong advocate for our sector and we hope to work with him and any other elected officials who want to engage in dialogue.
