Louise Roy and I don't see eye to eye


Who would have thunk? According to this article from Saturday's La Presse, the new president of the Montreal Arts Council wants to start accepting private donations for culture and redistribute them in a similar manner to Centraide.

Great! just what we need, a new set of gatekeepers deciding what's art and what's not. Second, no matter how cheap the administrative costs of running an organization like that, it will be too much. Third of all the hoops that will need to be jumped through in order to get the money are not likely to be easy. Fourth how is any arts organization going to be able compete in raising money against the city?

And lastly, the picture in the article was supplied by Communication Papineau Couture, why does Ms. Roy need a PR firm?
