Per Capita/Arts Sustainability Funding Report

Per Capita/Arts Sustainability (PC/AS) funding was introduced by the Cities of Kitchener and Waterloo, and the Region of Waterloos in 2010, at the request of the Creative Enterprise Task Force, in order to increase the total amount of arts and culture funding. Five years after implementing the additional funding, the municipalities contracted with Angela Birdsell Inc. - Cultural Management and Policy Consulting, to undertake a review the effectiveness of the Per Capita/Arts Sustainability (PC/AS) funding; and to provide recommendations for a future funding model for key cultural institutions. Section 1 of the study assesses the effectiveness of this increased funding after five years. Section 2 of the study is an assessment of appropriate levels of municipal funding for larger cultural institutions, and an evaluation of potential future collaborative funding models for the municipalities.
