Happy holidays to all of our colleagues at the BC Community Music Schools and to all the readers of this blog. If you have been following this blog for awhile you will understand that this past year has been a challenging one for many arts organizations in BC. Most of us have been dealing with the 100% withdrawal of government funding while at the same time many of the parents and families that we work with have experienced a year of challenges and economic hardship of their own. At the same time there are new opportunities and greener pastures perhaps just around the corner. The loss of funding may help make us less dependent on grants and more dependent on our own grass roots support from our constituents and communities.
Here is looking for better days ahead for the next year. All the best to everyone for 2010. Cheers.
