Speak out against the destruction of Edmonton's Art and Culture Resources

Darren Radbourne started this petition to City of Edmonton

Edmonton is facing the loss of two historic resources, the Mitchell & Reed Auction House (the Artery) and the Graphic Arts Building. Not only are these buildings among a dwindling number of historic assets in Edmonton, they also represent a very scarce commodity in our city, affordable space for grassroots arts and culture to flourish.
On September 10, the city quietly released a report to respond to councillor McKeen's questions as to why the city needs to demolish these buildings. The report can be found by clicking Item 7.1 in the meeting agenda here:

This report will be presented to the Executive Committee of council on September 18 at 1:30pm. Please show your support for Edmonton's Heritage, Arts, and Culture by attending the meeting. Even better, register to speak at the meeting to let the committee know that these places are valuable to our community.

 

Please sign this petition to show your support for grassroots Arts and Culture in Edmonton.
