I received great news. The Neighbourhood Arts Network (a Toronto wide network of over 1025 members, including artists, arts organizations, cultural workers and community agencies working throughout the city of Toronto) offered their members an opportunity to put forth a project they are working on and possibly be chosen to received $1000 from their BMO Seed Fund.
My project, Steelpan With Suzette, has made it to the TOP TEN FINALISTS.
My project will be offered during Culture Days (Sept 26th-28th), a national celebration of arts & culture. This will be my 3rd year offering a free workshop to the citizens of Toronto.
I will have sessions specifically for children, adults, the blind and visually impaired. Discussions and demonstrations will include the origins, development and current innovations. I will have special guests performing pan poetry and there will be pan performances.
Any money received from the Seed Fund will go towards project promotion, transportation of instruments & equipment, reading materials (bilingual, large print, braille), arts supplies and guest artists.
If you think this is a great project for the community please vote.
