Support ArtsVote by going to a Second City show in Toronto for only $15 on Sundays
A bit of history from the ArtsVote website: "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."
