Save Edmonton Journal's Arts Coverage
This petition had 739 supporters
Major cuts to arts coverage are being proposed at the Edmonton Journal:
- There will be no more previews of classical music events
- Reviews will be extremely limited: only classical music events that have a major celebrity performing will potentially be reviewed
- Reviews will be on the web only
- There will no longer be a full-time Arts editor
The Journal has been a major source for Edmontonians to find out about upcoming arts events and the reviews are a key component of the performance scene. The proposed cuts will have a devastating effect on the arts community. We urge the Journal to reconsider these cuts.
Show your support for continuing local arts coverage by signing this petition and consider contacting editor-in-chief Mark Iype (email@example.com) and VP editorial, western Canada, Lorne Motley (firstname.lastname@example.org) to voice your concerns.
