Alberta NDP response to Question 4

Question:  Will you restore Provincial funding to the Arts Commons?

Alberta’s NDP have long been supporters of the arts. We know that the arts contribute not only to the quality of life in our communities, but also to our economy. We are committed to diversifying Alberta’s economy and the arts play an important part of this change.

Question:  How will you support arts, culture and recreation in Calgary?

We have shown our commitment to the arts in Alberta in our platform. We will demonstrate our support for the arts, by increasing funding by $5 million this year, up to $15 million or 50% of the budget of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts. We will commit to meeting with stakeholders of the Arts Common in order to find a solution to the need for funding for this arts centre in Calgary.
