  • Chinatown performance aims to bring healing after racist incidents


    In Vancouver's Chinatown Monday, a group of dancers, performers and artists gathered together — while still respecting physical distancing guidelines — in an act of solidarity and healing after an increase in racist attacks against those of Asian descent in the city.

    The Vancouver Police Department said 20 anti-Asian hate crimes have been reported to police as of last week. In comparison, there were 12 anti-Asian hate crimes reported in all of 2019.

    The Chinese Cultural Centre, where the demonstration took place, had been defaced with racist graffiti at the beginning of April.

    Ziyian Kwan, a dancer and the organizer behind the demonstration, said she wanted to hold the performance as a "way to counteract the negative things that had been happening, with a peaceful action." Read more

  • Emergency Support Fund for Cultural, Heritage and Sport Organizations / Fonds d’urgence relatif à la COVID-19 pour soutenir les organismes chargés de la culture, du patrimoine et du sport


    Next steps to support the industry impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic. 

    News release

    Culture, heritage and sport organizations play an essential role in Canadian society. They are a vital part of the social fabric of our communities. They generate solidarity, promote social integration and tolerance, and are a source of civic pride. They are also major drivers of the Canadian economy, contributing three percent of Canada’s Gross Domestic Product.

    The Minister of Canadian Heritage, the Honourable Steven Guilbeault, today shared further details regarding the Government of Canada’s April 17 announcement of temporary relief measures to support the culture, heritage and sport sectors as they manage the challenges and impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and plan for the future. A total of up to $500 million has been set aside to help alleviate the financial pressures of affected organizations.

    Starting today, partner organizations will be contacted so that funds can begin to flow to cultural and sport organizations. Canadian Heritage is working closely with its partners – in particular, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Canada Media Fund, FACTOR, Musicaction, and Telefilm Canada – to distribute the funds as quickly as possible using existing channels.

    Prochaines étapes pour venir en aide à l'industrie touchée par la pandémie mondiale de la COVID-19.

    Communiqué de presse
    GATINEAU (Québec) – le 8 mai 2020

    Les organismes culturels, patrimoniaux et sportifs jouent un rôle essentiel dans la société canadienne. Ils font partie intégrante du tissu social de nos communautés. Ils suscitent la solidarité, favorisent l'intégration sociale et la tolérance, et sont une source de fierté citoyenne. Ils sont également des moteurs importants de notre économie, puisqu'ils contribuent à 3 % du produit intérieur brut du Canada.

    Aujourd'hui, l'honorable Steven Guilbeault, ministre du Patrimoine canadien, a donné plus de détails sur l’annonce qu’a faite le gouvernement du Canada le 17 avril concernant d’autres mesures d'aide temporaires pour soutenir les secteurs de la culture, du patrimoine et du sport pendant qu’ils gèrent les défis et les répercussions de la pandémie de la COVID-19, et planifient l'avenir. Au total, jusqu'à 500 millions de dollars ont été mis de côté pour aider à alléger les pressions financières que subissent les organismes touchés.

    Dès aujourd'hui, les organisations partenaires seront contactées afin que les fonds puissent commencer à être versés aux organismes culturel et sportifs. Patrimoine canadien travaille en étroite collaboration avec ses partenaires, en particulier le Conseil des arts du Canada, le Fonds des médias du Canada, FACTOR, Musicaction et Téléfilm Canada, pour distribuer les fonds aussi rapidement que possible en utilisant les canaux existants. Lire la suite.
