Help Support Culture

I was talking with a friend the other day about the collateral damage done by the current BCTF job action. This is not a comment on the job action itself; my goal is to create awareness of stories that do not seem to make the headlines. No field trips mean that the already underfunded cultural places and events like museums and theatres lose their revenue from school groups and school programs. For some smaller organizations this means layoffs. It could also mean that these programs will cease to exist.

However, you can make a difference. Go see a live show at your local theatre.

Go visit your local museum or art gallery. 

To my Maple Ridge followers, consider becoming a  member of the Maple Ridge Historical Society. Its only $20 a year for an individual membership and in addition to the benefits of the newsletters and guest speakers and other events, they will also add their voices to our effort to get a new museum for this community.
