By Naomi Brand

In response to the lack of office, studio and rehearsal space in St. John’s, the Artists Infrastructure Committee (AIC), a sub-committee of the city’s Arts Advisory Committee, has held focus groups and conducted a survey to further clarify artists’ needs. Among the AIC’s next steps is to develop a conceptual plan, funding strategy and governance plan for the construction of a centre for the arts. In related St. John’s news, preservation issues have been brought to light in a report that summarizes discussions from The Dance Heritage Think Tank – a gathering of dance professionals who met February 21, 2009. The report identifies needs and goals related to dance preservation in Newfoundland and Labrador and makes key recommendations.
