La Voix De La Danse Au Canada

L’Assemblée canadienne de la danse (ACD) a pour raison d’être de porter la voix du secteur professionnel de la danse au Canada. Elle milite pour un environnement sain et pérenne dans lequel la danse professionnelle canadienne peut s’épanouir. L’ACD cultive une voix nationale forte pour la danse professionnelle canadienne et encourage le développement de ressources destinées à ce champ d’expression artistique. À l’occasion de conférences, d’ateliers et d’événements rassembleurs, nous réunissons la communauté de la danse d’un océan à l’autre, de façon à bâtir un milieu solide et dynamique.

Nous sommes reconnaissants pour les enseignements traditionnels et contemporains que les peuples, collègues, Aînés et pairs autochtones prodiguent, pour la possibilité de danser et de célébrer sur cette terre et pour la liberté créatrice dont nous jouissons.

    • CRA demotes Halifax sculptor to 'hobby artist' and gives him $14K tax bill

      30-Apr-2018

      An established Halifax sculptor says he was shocked and insulted by a Canada Revenue Agency ruling demoting him to the status of "hobby artist" and giving him a $14,500 tax bill.

      Installation artist Steve Higgins, also a part-time instructor at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, was notified his expense claims from a 2013 art project were rejected because the work was funded by public grants and not sold for profit. The basis of the ruling has some Canadian arts groups concerned about what they see as a dangerous precedent. Higgins said he received the reassessment from the CRA in January. His expense claims were rejected and he was informed he owed $14,495.37 in back taxes. Those taxes are due today, the April 30 deadline for Canadians to file their income tax returns.

    • Liberals threaten to hold back arts funding under new anti-harassment policy

      26-Apr-2018

      April 25, 2018 - Arts groups that want funding from the Department of Canadian Heritage or the Canada Council will have to commit to keeping their workplaces free of harassment, abuse and discrimination as the government clamps down on sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry. Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly announced on Wednesday that Ottawa will no longer provide money to organizations, including those in the performing arts, that have failed to adopt a “no tolerance” policy toward sexual violence and harassment. The Heritage department and the Canada Council for the Arts, the country’s public arts funder, have also agreed to spend a combined $552,000 to sponsor workshops to provide training that will help arts organizations create and maintain respectful workplaces.

      Kate Cornell
      , the executive director for the Canadian Dance Assembly, a recipient of Canada Council funding, and a spokeswoman for the Canadian Arts Coalition, said it is “fabulous” that arts workplaces will have to be harassment free to obtain grants and contributions from the council or the government. The Canadian Arts Coalition has been helping to build safer and more respectful work spaces, Ms. Cornell said. “So it is important for the funders to be on the same page as the community. And they have really heard us.”

    • Salaries in the arts have decreased since 2008/ Dans les arts, les salaires ont diminué depuis 2008

      24-Apr-2018

      The Canada Council for the Arts and the Department of Canadian Heritage today released the 2017 National Compensation Study - For Managerial and Administrative Positions in Not-for-Profit Arts Organizations, an update to a similar study in 2008 and before that, in 2003. The full report is available on both the Canada Council website and at www.culturalhrc.ca/research.

      The findings show there have been only minimal compensation improvements, particularly for the small and mid-sized organizations which make up the majority of the arts organizations in the sector - and in fact, over the nine-year period since 2008, real wages actually decreased.

      Le Conseil des arts du Canada et le ministère du Patrimoine canadien dévoilent aujourd'hui L'étude nationale sur la rémunération 2017 - Gestion et administration des organismes artistiques sans but lucratif, une mise à jour d'études similaires réalisées en 2008 et en 2003. Vous trouverez le document complet de l'étude sur le site Web du Conseil des arts du Canada ainsi que sur le site Web du CRHSC www.crhsculturel.ca/recherche.

      Les conclusions de l'étude montrent qu'il n'y a eu que de très faibles améliorations dans la rémunération, particulièrement dans les petits et moyens organismes qui constituent la majorité des organismes du secteur culturel - en fait, au cours des neuf ans qui se sont écoulés depuis 2008, les salaires réels ont diminué.
