CADME SUPPORTS MOUNT ROYAL UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS
CADME is working alongside SOFA as well as other organizations to continue to urge the reversal of the decision to cut programs at Mount Royal University. It is our belief that these programs, particularly the Fine Arts programs are integral to a healthy and vibrant community.
We urge everyone to get involved by writing letters to the MRU board of governors as well as to local and provincial politicians. Also – stay tuned for news of an upcoming rally at the Epcor Centre hosted by CADA and supported by CADME, SOFA and others.
Please take the time to read these two documents:
Please continue to apply pressure. This is a critical time for the arts in our community.
