A familiar face to most in Alberta’s music industry and beyond, Provincial Advocacy Steering Committee member Kennedy Jenson made our 11th delivery of art love to the Alberta Legislature.
The package may have been slimmer, but the sentiments it contained were just as earnest as all the rest.
Albertans are asking our provincial government to ensure sustainable, long-term investment in the arts and culture sector of our economy. After all, with a $12 dollar return to the larger provincial economy with every $1 invested, what enterprising people wouldn’t want an investment like that.
Arts and culture touches almost every aspect of our lives and communities in Alberta. Just ask our arts champions (scroll down the page) – prominent Albertan citizens who have seen the difference the arts have made to this province.
You, too, can add your voice to this message we are sending to our premier and our provincial government. As promised, we have been diligently delivering your messages of art love and will continue to do so until all messages have been received at the Alberta Legislature.
If you are interested in sending a postcard, simply click on this link and print off your choice of card to send Premier Stelmach. An even easier way to get your message out is to click on the “I Love Alberta Art” petition. Your message will quickly reach us from any area of Alberta and, from there, to the Alberta Legislature.
You can find documentation of every delivery we make on your behalf on this website and archived at this link. Visit this website often to get updates on our progress.
The final day of week three and Provincial Advocacy Steering Committee member Todd Janes is back with us again to deliver another art-loving package of postcards to Premier Stelmach. Will we still be delivering in week four? That is up to Alberta’s arts and culture lovers.
We have promised to continue to deliver as long as there are messages of art love destined for Premier Stelmach. If you still have not sent in your message of art love, go to http://www.pacedmonton.com/advocacy/toolkit/ to download your postcard or sign the “I Love Alberta Art” petition. We will receive it either way and will ensure Premier Stelmach does, too.
The outpouring of art love from all over Alberta has been – and continues to be – amazing. Albertans recognize how much economic activity our arts sector generates but, more importantly, they recognize how arts and culture improves our lives in so many ways.
We have made these points before and will continue to make them. Keep visiting this website to follow our progress on deliveries of art love.
