Great things are happening in arts and culture in Burlington, and people like Selina Eckersall-McCall, founder of No Vacancy and our Arts Person of the Year for 2013, are making them happen.

Watch my video interview with Selina as she explains her dream for arts and culture in Burlington, and the vision behind Cirque, a “contemporary art spectacular”, Fri. Sept. 19, 7pm-2am, in Village Square, downtown Burlington.

Thirty contemporary artists will transform a variety of spaces inside the charming Village Square into a walking multi-artist exhibition, with performance and street art, and a pop-up art market open until midnight.

See you in the Square!!

Your Take: What’s your vision for arts and culture in Burlington? Leave a comment below or email me at mariannemeedward@bell.net.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
