BC flickr photographers help speak out against arts cuts

Posted on Updated on

Recently I had the privilege of producing a PSA with Jenn Strom for the Alliance for Arts and Culture in response to the BC government’s funding cuts to the arts. About a month ago the Vancouver arts community put together a huge rally at the Vancouver Art Gallery. This PSA starts with that event.

Thanks to a big community of flickr photographers and several BC artists (listed below) who contributed their time, images and music to this video. Very special thanks to Jenn for contributing her talent and insight.

Please share it widely and spread the word.
