Arts Day on the Hill – October 25, 2016! Participate on Social Media!
This event is a great opportunity for artists, arts managers and board members of arts organizations across the country to meet with Members of Parliament. It’s our opportunity to bring arts advocates from across the country together to collectively speak to federal stakeholders and to talk with them about the value that the arts bring to Canadian communities.
