We all know that the arts are often the first thing to be cut from budgets at every level. We also know that the arts are far too important to be lost in the shuffle. The Guelph Arts Council needs your voice to help keep the arts at the forefront of the agenda. We will be launching advocacy efforts and will be asking for your voice! Whether it's signing a petition, writing a letter, or coming out to help us champion our cause, your voice WILL make a difference. If you're interested in following our advocacy initiatives, please make sure you're on our mailing list and we will let you know when to get involved!
