There’s also the addition of a page called “Things Fringe” – I get a great deal of info on the Toronto Fringe year-round but especially coming up to January and July – usually items like lottery announcements, job opps, etc – I normally post them in the blog section but it made sense to me for them to have their own permanent space. We’ll see how it goes.
Got an email about participant feedback in the Funding Opportunities round tables a little while ago:
Thank you for your contribution at the consultations on arts and cultural investment in the City. Together with the Toronto Arts Council, we have now held four public consultations in each part of the City. We’ve also heard from the film and screen-based industry sector, the fashion and design sector, and the museums and heritage sector. We’ve listened to over 300 people give their suggestions on what should be the principles and priorities for new investment, and what kind impact this support will have on themselves, their organizations, their communities and the city a whole. As well, we have had over 800 responses to our online survey. This process has again confirmed what a vibrant, creative, and entrepreneurial community we serve. The survey will remain open until April 30th, and we encourage you to complete it and circulate it to your networks if you have not done so already.
A draft summary of the findings was attached. Here it is.
Off to the Young Centre tonight to see VideoCab’s The War of 1812 – super excited. It will be interesting to see them outside of where I always see them – the back room of the Cameron House. Stunning reviews so far, both media and people. Will keep you posted!
