Danny Williams coughs up for the arts

Well, not yet but today, in front of a packed audience at the LSPU Hall, Premier Danny Williams and Tourism Minister Tom Hedderson announced the launch of a new cultural plan called 'Creative Newfoundland and Labrador'. A three year plan, it involves some exciting details including a half million bucks to renovate the wonderful LSPU Hall. Other details include providing "$675,000 under Budget 2006 in support of professional artists and the creative process through various programs, including an additional $300,000 in 2006 for the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council. " Yay, more grant money! Find out more here and here.

I want to say "thank you" to Danny and "yahoo" for all the artists in the province and all those who enjoy our art, be it written, performed or sung.
