Art’s Need For New Stories

The answers can only come from someone with political savvy. In Canada, the discussion is a complete non-starter. Possible improvisations are below the horizon because the arts sector is mostly publically funded and therefore has only election-cycle interest in politics.

The Governor General and the Withering of Arts

None of this scares me. I’ve learned that very few people listen to old, white men anymore and that boring can have benefits, especially in a banking system. As for glamour, it’s all pretty fleeting anyways. But there is something about David Johnston that scares me.

Canada’s Parliamentary Arts Caucus

I’ve often written about the lack of squeak in the wheel of Canada’s arts communities. For an industry under a rising tide of marginalization, to be so quiet is absolutely confusing, especially given that specific groups, like festivals, can bombard the media with information and calls for attention – and get it. But as an overall community with a sermon’s message of the most positive things, the arts chapel is disappointingly hushed.

Frustration with politics seems to fester in the reality-free gap between expectation (or, in some cases, campaign promises) and execution. One of the reasons arts gets too-short a rope in our culture is that artists have enough reality-free zones of their own to explore without worrying about the lobbying it takes to get real political traction.

When I saw a movie called Blade Runner in 1982, I felt my first real empathetic pang of what death could feel like. The movie had violence, eroticism and very cool special effects, and maybe that’s what caused the death-implication imprint on me that Midnight Cowboy, Vanishing Point and Silent Running (all equally profound statements on dying) didn’t have. It’s almost impossible
to predict what kind of sensory images will go deep into the bone, and that’s the problem facing creative expression in Canada today. It’s not a genetic issue; we …

It’s really unfortunate that in North America a big part of the discussion about arts and culture revolves around whether it’s worth the economic effort. Isn’t that the same as wondering about the value of good health? If so, how did we plunge to the point where the intrinsic value of creativity had a dollar value put on it? Perhaps one reason is the commoditization of artistic product that’s happened exponentially since the end of World War II or because creativity is so difficult to attach metrics to, unlike life …

However you’ve landed here, welcome. I’m hoping it’s because you are part of, or just interested in, Ottawa’s arts and creativity. That’s what UnFolding’s blog is all about, as will be its full Website when it launches in early March. Both carry on the print edition’s attempt (as Kitch Art 2007-2009; as UnFolding 2009) to reveal that Ottawa is actually a very creative place. As far as I can tell, this is the first entity devoted to all Ottawa’s arts. Others do parts of it very well, but it is …
