ABOUT THE PROJECT:
“No one is more qualified to speak on behalf of artists than artists themselves.”
— Jack Chambers, CARFAC founder
In 1968, Canadian Artists’ Representation was founded in London, Ontario when a group of artists, headed by Jack Chambers, Tony Urquhart and Kim Ondaatje organized themselves collectively to demand the recognition of artists’ copyright. They began issuing minimum copyright fee schedules and continue to produce them regularly.
We invite you to join us in celebrating a period in Canadian history that often is considered to be the birth of Canadian contemporary culture. It was a critical time when artists demanded respect. CanCon and the CRTC were also established in 1968. Canadians, for the first time, could tune in and hear Canadian music on AM radio.
Our Brown Bag Lunch event and old time radio show is a peek into the past and a time for artists to join together to celebrate all that is good.
For your own Brown Bag Lunch, order a delicious PEI Handpie. Choices are curried chickpeas, Acadien tourtiere or PEI pasty. Please note that handpies are not available for Sunday’s event. All handpies are crafted by sustainable local ingredients. Gather in Victoria Park with friends and colleagues and listen to our specially curated Brown Bag Old Time Radio show. Handpies are $5.00 each or $55.00 (includes a one year CARFAC Maritimes membership).
