#CdnCult Times; Volume 3, Edition 10


Welcome to the BIG IDEA edition of #CdnCult Times. This is the final edition of our 3rd volume and we wanted to finish with ideas that would challenge the status quo. More that pie-in-the-sky provocations, these articles each suggest tangible measures that would bring about change.

Jillian Keiley, Artistic Director of The English Theatre at The National Arts Centre proposes how we can use hashtags on Twitter to create a national dialogue around theatre criticism, Nightswimming AD and Banff Playwrights Colony Director Brian Quirt discusses how theatres can use community to take on big ideas and projects, and I follow up on my earlier proposal on how to use arts and culture to reform The Senate of Canada.

All big ideas. All doable tomorrow.

See you in October when we launch Volume 4 with new features and a new look.
