CARFAC National is pleased to announce that Past-President Pat Durr has received the Canadian Conference of the Arts’ Keith Kelly Award for Cultural Leadership.
CARFAC nominated Durr for this award, which celebrates achievement in arts advocacy and leadership in the development of cultural policy. Through her term as CARFAC National President (1980-84, 2002-05) she has tackled issues of health and safety, copyright, customs regulations, and taxation for artists on a national level. Locally, she sat on numerous arts advisory committees for the City of Ottawa and is a founding member of the Ottawa Art Court Foundation, which in turn established the Ottawa Art Gallery.
The 2006 CCA National Arts Awards ceremony will take place on September 15th at Queen’s Park in Toronto, hosted by Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, the Honorable James K. Bartleman.
