On Wednesday, February 2nd join Davenport MPP Marit Stiles for a virtual townhall meeting with local arts organizations and cultural workers to discuss the rapidly changing landscape for artists in the city.
From the Rehearsal Factory on Geary to the Sterling Lofts, arts artists and cultural workers are being forced out of our city. We need solutions to provide truly affordable living, working, creating and performing space in our city.
