David Diamond’s CBC interview on the arts cuts

David Diamond, Artistic Director of Headlines Theatre in Vancouver, was interviewed by the CBC today on Jane Danzo’s resignation from the BC Arts Council in particular and the BC arts cuts in general. David is excellent; Rick Cluff doesn’t seem to quite grasp the seriousness of the issue of political interference in the arts or the idea that independent arts are central to democracy and civil society. When Cluff asks David if he’s “reading into” the government’s actions, is he just serious or just playing devil’s advocate? As David says, this interference is so overt that there’s no “reading into” anything. The interview, on the Early Edition with host Rick Cluff, can be downloaded below.
