ArtsVote 2010 is a coalition of arts workers and artists, working to elect candidates who support the arts in the October 25, 2010 municipal election. Our goals are to communicate the value of our contribution to Toronto, and mobilize all of us who earn our living in the arts to vote for candidates who are committed to building a vibrant and cultured community.
ArtsVote was founded in 1993 by a dedicated team of arts workers and artists, with the goal of raising awareness among the cultural community of the importance of their vote for candidates who supported the cultural sector in the city of Toronto. Through four municipal elections, beginning in 1994, ArtsVote created and distributed the excellent and effective Report Card and was instrumental in getting arts-savvy voters out to the polls. Between elections, ArtsVote organized deputations to City (& Metro) Council at budget time, encouraging councillors to continue investing in the arts community.
