Fredericton Arts Alliance’s Provincial Election Forum on Arts Issues, September 6 at 7pm in the Charlotte Street Arts Centre

The Fredericton Arts Alliance has organized a town hall forum on arts issues. All provincial political parties have been invited to send one candidate to discuss things cultural and artistic, party policies on the arts, and plans or projects to encourage the arts. Susanne Alexander of Goose Lane Editions will moderate the forum.

The format will consist of opening statements (order of speaking to be determined by a draw), followed by questions directed to the various candidates. There will be an opportunity for closing remarks in reverse order of the opening statements. We are asking Arts News readers to highlight issues they would like raised at the forum. If you have something you want the candidates to address, please send an email with your suggestions to us at: president@frederictonartsalliance.ca.

We would like to circulate five questions to the candidates in advance of the forum to start the discussion rolling, and to ensure that most of the key questions are addressed. Further questions from the floor will round out the evening. Light refreshments will be served. The Fredericton Arts Alliance has organized election forums for every federal, provincial, and municipal election since 1999.
