ART ED­U­CA­TION IN­VEST­MENTS

- Illiteracy · Arts · Education · British Columbia

The cul­tural econ­omy of BC is in trou­ble.

The trou­ble stems from a dwin­dling sup­ply of artists, and lack-lus­ter in­vest­ment in arts ed­u­ca­tion from K-12 and post-se­condary. With­out ad­e­quate in­vest­ment in pre-k-12 and post-se­condary art ed­u­ca­tion, busi­nesses are at risk of los­ing an es­sen­tial skill: cre­ativ­ity.

REC­OM­MEN­DA­TION TO BC GOV­ERN­MENT:

In­vest in fund­ing for arts ed­u­ca­tion for early child­hood to K-12 and post-se­condary cur­ricu­lums.
