WAYO 104.3's Up Close and Cultural host Rachel DeGuzman had a conversation with Janice Gouldthorpe, Margot Muto, Doug Rice and Thomas Warfield about how we value arts and culture, how it is funded, who gets funded and why it matters. This on-going conversation was most recently inspired by a CBC.ca article entitled -Who makes up the 1%? In the arts, it's the bureaucrats, but the dialogues will not be limited to that narrow frame of exploration.
