The Manitoba Arts and Cultural Alliance (MACA) is meeting with all three major provincial political parties today.
The MACA is holding a series of meetings at the Manitoba legislature with the NDP, Progressive Conservative and Liberal caucuses to introduce the MACA and highlight arts, culture and heritage in the province.
“We see it as a great opportunity to begin a long-term relationship between the arts and culture community, and government,” said Randy Joynt, executive director of Artspace and MACA board chair.
“Arts Day on the Hill” was recently held in Ottawa, which acted as an inspiration for the local meetings.
