Sudbury needs youth concerts - Amelia Rauhanen

I am writing to express my concerns after reading in Northern Life that the Sudbury Art Council will no longer host youth concerts.

I am writing to express my concerns after reading in Northern Life that the Sudbury Art Council will no longer host youth concerts.

The Art Council was a very good location for the youth concerts as it was located in the downtown area where art and diversity is supposed to thrive and was located next to the city transit depot. The council is supposed to help facilitate and promote different activities, yet it will no longer support providing live music to the public.

The council also was a good all-age venue, which is difficult to find in Greater Sudbury for a reasonable price, size and location with easy accessibility.

Money from a fundraiser show had been donated to help purchase a PA system for the council. Now some of the people that donated their own money can no longer attend concerts at this venue.

These youth concerts are attended by over 150 people and generate good revenues. Parents knew where their children were and those who loved music had a place to go.

It is time for Sudbury to seriously support its youth in activities other than traditional sports and get people involved in cultural. This city is in dire need of artistic expression and venues!
