ArtsVote Winnipeg is a non-partisan coalition of volunteers working to ensure arts and cultural issues are addressed in the run-up to Winnipeg’s October 27, 2010 municipal election.
We believe bold, visionary cultural policies and greater public investment in the arts are essential to fulfilling Winnipeg’s potential as a creative, prosperous city and encourages those seeking office to put forth their cultural platforms.
ArtsVote Winnipeg has identified two priorities that we believe will contribute to a stronger more vibrant Winnipeg, poised to reach its potential as a true city of the arts.
Winnipeg needs bold, visionary leadership to implement bold, visionary cultural policy, as well as to include culture as a cornerstone of the broader policy-planning framework. Cities across the world are enacting policies that embrace the “creative community” and Winnipeg must actively support a move towards recognizing the vital role culture can play in reaching our city’s potential.
Increase investment in arts and culture. Though the breadth and quality of Winnipeg¹s arts and cultural activity is a source of civic pride, the arts and cultural community faces many resource-based challenges. Winnipeg needs leaders who recognize the many benefits of a thriving and arts and cultural scene, will listen to the community, and work to address these challenges.
