Recently we hosted an interactive arts advocacy circle lead by Sheniz Janmohamed. This was the first time YRAC coordinated a discussion specifically around ‘arts advocacy’ in York Region.
For those unable to participate in-person, we have developed a very brief online survey (less than 5 minutes) that you can fill in on your own time.
Please note that the survey closes on Monday, August 27 at 11:59 pm.
Arts Advocacy in York Region Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/AdvocacyCircleSurvey
Short-term outcomes will be:
- YRAC will share what artists, cultural workers and arts supporters care about with electoral candidates ahead of the upcoming municipal elections
- YRAC will present questions prepared by local artists, cultural workers and arts supporters to electoral candidates and publish responses on the YRAC website.
Why are we doing this?
1.Because support for the arts and culture sector at the municipal and regional level matter to an economically and socially vibrant and inclusive York Region
2.To provide artists, culture workers and supporters of the arts in York Region with a new way to amplify topics and questions that matter to them
3.To encourage informed voting
4.To take a step towards future arts advocacy work
