Ordinary People: Intervention

Ordinary People: Intervention
Sunday, October 5, 2008 - 4:00am

I think when ordinary working people come home, turn on the TV and see a gala of a bunch of people at, you know, a rich gala all subsidized by taxpayers claiming their subsidies aren't high enough, when they know those subsidies have actually gone up – I'm not sure that's something that resonates with ordinary people, Stephen Harper said in Saskatoon, where he was campaigning for the Oct. 14 election.

The artist collective Ordinary People rejects the recent statements made by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and calls upon ordinary people to show their support of the arts.

This is a call to action for all ordinary people from ordinary people.

Join us in a public action during Nuit Blanche.

At midnight on Saturday, October 4, we ask you to STOP for 4 minutes 33 seconds and hold up a piece of paper displaying the word ART. (John Cage, 4’33”).

The artist collective Ordinary People believes that everyone benefits in a society that respects and promotes culture.

Ordinary People includes students from the Ontario College of Art & Design and the internationally renowned artist ORLAN.
