Indie Caucus endorsed candidates in CAEA elections gain office
Aaron Willis, Vinetta Strombergs and Mark Brownell are your new Ontario CPAG members.
The election of these members following a 96-1 vote in support of indie reform by membership at the 2008 AGM in Toronto, and the 46-2 vote demanding these reforms proceed with due haste at the 2009 AGM in Montreal (presented by newly-elected Quebec CPAG member Zach Fraser), indicates a huge amount of momentum for a new approach to contracting indie theatre.
Is the age of CAEA actively discouraging and opposing work by independent artists coming to an end? The cumulative message behind all of these votes, motions and AGMs is that resolving this issue is a major priority for CAEA membership nationwide.
