Tuesday night, February 15, at 7:00, at Kitchener City Hall, Kitchener councilors are discussing whether or not to continue to support sustainability funding for the arts in Kitchener. The sustainability fund was established last year to help ensure the long-term success of the city’s cultural institutions. There is a possibility this critically important support may not be continued. You can help send a clear message to city council that the arts do matter in our community; that you, as members of the public, want the arts to receive adequate municipal support; and that the public is watching, and cares about, this decision. You can do all this just by showing up!
The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. in the Council chambers of Kitchener City Hall.
