Culture Days Arts and Poverty Forum
Date and Time: Sunday, October 2nd 1-2pm
Location: Civic Theatre
Nelson BC is known as one of the best small arts towns in North America, but also holds a rental vacancy rate of 1.6% (2015) and an average rental rate of $722/month (2013) for a one bedroom apartment . How are artists living under these conditions? How are we, as a community, able to help support our artists who make this area the creative hub that it is? This roundtable discussion will include Jenny Robinson (Nelson CARES), Anna Purcell (City Councillor), Will Johnson (Writer), Brian Kalbfleisch (Artist/Blue Night) and Doug Leitch (Artist) as they discuss these questions as well as taking questions from the audience.
If you have a question that you would like asked at the forum, please email it to [email protected]
