WHY DO ARTS FACILITIES MATTER?
Facilities are the places where arts and culture happen. Healthy facilities, artistic capability, organizations and finances are the four hallmarks of a thriving arts and culture sector.
Despite their importance, facilities are the most under-resourced component of arts operations. Which is why providing tools and resources to help our arts organizations run sustainable facilities is so important for Ontario’s arts organizations.
