Civic Election Candidates responses to questions about the arts in Nanaimo

The Nanaimo Arts Council posed three questions to candidates in the current civic election.

1. Do you support City of Nanaimo funding for the proposed Community Performing Arts Centre at the Port Theatre, contingent on funding being found from other government bodies and sponsors as well? Why or why not?

2. Do you think the City of Nanaimo has a role to play in supporting the arts in Nanaimo? If so, what is that role? If not, why?

3. Please tell us about one memorable arts event you attended or participated in. What made it memorable? 

You can read their answers here http://nanaimoartscouncil.blogspot.ca/2014/11/City-Council-Candidates-arts-questionnaire.html  

Here are the results of a survey done by British Columbia's Alliance for Arts and Culture has conducted a survey to ask the views of candidates across the province on arts, culture, and heritage issues facing the creative sector in our society and in their respective communities. Candidates' responses will be updated daily until the survey closes on November 12.
