As a group of us sat stoically in the gallery as professionals and supporters of the project, Chrystene Ells and Berny Hi made a precise, passionate (not to mention quick) five minute presentation to the city council for the Caligari Project 4 month arts and culture festival for next fall. As I'd hoped, but didn't dare dream, the proposal was accepted whole-heatedly and they've grated us the full sum we asked for. This will ensure we are able to have a paid organizer and some promotion for the events. Now the 'easy' part, we make some creative things happen. Great work everyone, and thank you City of Regina and Chrystene and Berny. Stay tuned.
