Arts Everywhere: Episode Twelve


The Dense Jungle of Bureaucracy

Patrick Close is active as a practicing artist, and like many artists, devoted a great deal of his career to arts administration. He has been a key voice within many of Canada’s arts organizations and has been a strong advocate for the Status of Artists legislation in our country.  His conversation with Em Ironstar offers an in-depth look at where we’ve come from and where we need to protect the equitable rights that artists of all disciplines so richly deserve.
