Arts Funding in Canada Way Down...
Arts funding in Canada has been radically reduced in recent years and Words Aloud, like every other arts organization, is suffering the consequences. Both provincial and federal funds came in well below our expectations – we're talking thousands of dollars that will not be available to us to cover basic expenses like artist fees, travel and accommodations.
...But You Can Help!
Help us keep Words Aloud the amazing festival it has always been by
- Suggesting new ways to find support, in addition to corporate sponsors, local business support and personal donations
- Making a donation using the Donate Now button on the right. It's easy and every bit helps
All funds raised will go directly to making this year's festival possible – this is our only alternative to cutting into our beloved programming. Workshops and satellite events are at risk here!
