The BC Liberal government has decided behind closed doors without notification to anyone that the definition of a “community cultural celebration” does not include “fringe festivals, dance festivals, film festivals, writers festivals, and music festivals” which are now largely ineligible to receive support. Their definition of youth and children’s programming was that unless youth, or children were the performers and the producers of the show then companies that produce shows for young audiences were ineligible.
This excludes so many valuable children’s programs that are produced by adults! Think of all the festivals that will now need to seek corporate sponsorship (or close down completely). More logos in our faces!
