A Heartfelt Thank You
We were very excited last week to receive the full reinstatement of our Community Gaming funding for our 2011-2012 year. We'd like to thank everyone who worked so hard for the reinstatement of adult arts and culture funding eligibility. This financial support allows Pi alone to offer employment to over thirty artists and arts workers, and to provide accessible theatre to hundreds of British Columbians. This stream of funding has an overwhelmingly positive impact on the community as a whole.
A sincere thank you to Minister Ida Chong and Premier Christy Clark for the roles they had in the reinstatement. We hope that this is the first step in the revitalization of the arts sector in BC, through the renewed support of the provincial government.
We'd like to thank Skip Triplett, who facilitated the Gaming Grant review with kindness, openness and compassion.
Lastly, we would like to say a huge thank you to all our colleagues and everyone who wrote letters and emails, and gave statements in support of adult arts and culture. We hope you all receive good news too!
