For those of you in the arts I have some required reading for you. Fellow blogger, The Enlightened Savage, has done up a wonderful primer to introduce you to Alberta’s new Minister of Culture and Community Spirit.

The Calgary Professional Arts Alliance will be sending Minister Blackett a personal welcome shortly, and hopefully we will be able to have him formally introduce himself to the arts community in the next couple of months. The CPAA is in the midst of planning a couple of events in the near future (including an AGM) so please stay tuned via the CPAA email bulletin – perhaps the best way to stay on top of arts goings on in Calgary.
