  • Dance about town this International Dance Day


    Site-specific work, an open rehearsal, and a dinner performance all make up activities in Vancouver this International Dance Day.

    Initiated in 1982 by UNESCO, International Dance Day happens every April 29 with events across Canada and around the world. The Canadian Dance Assembly publishes a national message, this year featuring Halifax-based dance artist Susanne Chui. One of Chui's Vancouver connections is that her company, Mocean Dance, premiered a new work by Vancouver choreographer Serge Bennathan last year.

    Keep your eyes peeled for dance in unexpected locales on Friday. Here are a few to note.

  • Budget 2016: What Artists & Art Orgs Need to Know


    The federal budget released today offers $40 million in new funding to the Canada Council (on top of its previous $180 million allotment) in the upcoming year.

    “In the advocacy that the Canadian Arts Coalition has done over the last 11 years we have been repeatedly asking for the doubling of the investment in the Canada Council, and for an investment in international market access, but we haven’t specifically been asking for a cultural spaces investment, so that was nice to see,” said Kate Cornell, spokesperson for the Canadian Arts Coalition.

    Read more on this article and what our Kate Cornell and other representatives have to say about the new funding.
