Changes to Canada Council Funding: Visual Arts sign now


PETITION

Changes to art funding at the Canada Council for the Arts
will cripple art practices in Canada.

Many of you have heard about the proposed changes to Visual Arts funding
at the Canada Council for the Arts. These changes, which are due to come
into effect in 2005, will dramatically reduce the number of
artists who will receive grants, and will set in place an inadequate
process of grant assessment, as well as bring corporate focus on
artistic production, seeing it as a product-oriented activity rather
than a process of innovation and continuous inquiry of the artists'
relationship to society.

As a professional visual artist (or supporter of the arts) in Canada,
I am deeply concerned about the proposed changes to visual arts funding
at the Canada Council.

The funding provided by the Canada Council for the Arts is extremely important
to the vitality of the art community in Canada and has successfully supported
a broad range of art practices.

As an artist, I rely on this funding and feel the proposed changes will
dramatically effect support for all artists in Canada.

I petition that these changes should be revised in better consultation
with art communities in Canada, to reflect a more equitable system that
is closer to the model of funding currently in place.

I disagree with the proposed changes and do NOT support them.

    there is a huge discrepancy in the amounts of grants for senior and mid career artists - this does not make sense to most mid level artists in this country

    Recent changes to the architecture program are proving to be of no help to architecture or architects, these new changes in visual arts appear to be following in the same down-grading of services.
