It’s July! The internet tells me it’s “National Anti-Boredom Month,” whatever that means, so I’ll try to keep it quick and lively.
Our executive director, Brenda, is taking a hard-earned vacay for the next couple weeks, but she was kind enough to drop off July’s ED Report before she took off. Give it a read. It’ll be like she never left.
In our News Clippings section, you’ll see a lot of articles about when and how cultural organizations are undertaking the tricky work of reopening while staying safe. Don’t forget that WorkSafe BC has released guidelines for arts and culture orgs as well as performing arts venues. Do that homework before you open those doors.
I’m feeling the intense pressure of Anti-Boredom Month bearing down on my shoulders, so let’s move this newsletter along before you tune out. Stay breezy!
P.S. That mystery from last week? Solved it. The streak lives on.
