- About the consultation
Canadian culture is, like other cultures, incredibly unique, and arts funding helps support it. Whether it's a novel about ice by Thomas Wharton, or performances by A Tribe Called Red, or funding residencies for new Canadian artists in every discipline, I'm convinced our culture wouldn't be nearly as well-represented both nationally and internationally without support on municipal, provincial and national levels. Artists take pride in the work they do (usually with little to no remuneration) and when they receive additional support it encourages them to keep going. I love that, with the help of funding, Canadian artists seem to sell out less, and continue on their own path.
