We know Winnipeg is a cultural city, but what do the mayoral candidates think when it comes to arts and culture?

ArtsVote Winnipeg is hosting a mayoral candidate forum on Tuesday at noon to hear the vision of all four candidates on the future of the city’s arts and culture scene.

Incumbent Mayor Sam Katz and challengers Judy Wasylycia-Leis, Rav Gill and Brad Gross will all participate.

“We anticipate a lively discussion with a different focus from previous forums,” said Thom Sparling, ArtsVote Winnipeg spokesperson. “We are hoping that the candidates will provide us with their bold visions of how arts and culture fit into their plans for a Winnipeg that is vibrant and that people are proud to call home.”

The forum will take place at the Tom Hendry Theatre at the MTC Warehouse, 140 Rupert Avenue, and last approximately 90 minutes. The public is welcome to attend.
