40% cut in funding for BC Arts Council

Arts and Culture in BC is heading into a severe crisis.

Arts and culture in BC contributes 5.2 BILLION to our economy each year. It employs 80,000 people. The Ministry’s own research shows that for every dollar invested in the arts, the province gets back $1.38 in taxes. Why is the government making drastic 40% cuts? How many jobs will be lost?
