Councilmember DeMaio Schedules December 14 Budget Town Hall at NTC Promenade Arts & Cultural District: Proposes Cuts to Arts FundingDear San Diego Arts and Culture Colleagues:
You may have heard about the proposal from San Diego City Councilmember Carl DeMaio to significantly cut arts and culture funding in his “Roadmap to Recovery.”
You can read about the cuts at Voice of San Diego (The proposed cuts to arts and culture come on page 37 of the Roadmap PDF.)
Councilmember DeMaio is holding a series of public Budget Town Halls to brief San Diegans on the Road to Recovery plan, answer questions and listen to their ideas.
A Town Hall is scheduled for Tuesday, December 14 from 6pm to 8pm at the NTC Command Center, 2640 Historic Decatur Road. The Command Center is in the heart of the city’s planned 26-building Civic, Arts and Cultural District at the former Naval Training Center.
Already 7 buildings are renovated and are home to over 40 Civic, Arts and Cultural organizations and artists - many of which will be impacted by the Councilmember’s proposed cuts.
Representatives from arts and cultural organizations are encouraged to attend the Forum and can RSVP at Roadmap to Recovery Facebook Page and click the "I'm Attending" button in the upper right corner.
In advance of the Town Hall, on Thursday, December 9 at 10 AM, These Days on KPBS will air a segment about this discussion. Dalouge Smith, CEO of San Diego Youth Symphony and outgoing Chair of San Diego Regional Arts & Culture Coalition, and Seema Sueko, Artistic Director of Mo`olelo Performing Arts Company, will be on air.
Please tune in (89.5 FM or www.kpbs.org ), and feel free to call in to join the conversation.

Skateworld has been an outstanding member of the Linda Vista community for nearly 35 years. This establishment attracts visitors from all over San Diego County and has made many positive contributions to the public. Skateworld hosts fundraisers for various causes, provides family-friendly activities, and employs many who would not find jobs elsewhere, such as teens with no previous work history. Businesses adjacent to the rink are also supported by Skateworld’s patrons. Many San Diegans, who remember skating there as children, now take their own families to Skateworld. Closing this rink would be a devastating loss for all of San Diego County.
Please join all of us who love Skateworld by voicing your support of the rink to the San Diego City Council. The community of Linda Vista is represented by 6th District Council Member Donna Frye. Her phone number- 619-236-6616; email- firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell Ms. Frye that you do not want to see Skateworld close! You can also show your support by signing our petition that will be presented to the City Council at a later date. There is no age limit – everyone is eligible to sign. You can sign the petition at Skateworld or at any NP Craft Mafia sponsored event. If you would like to help collect signatures, you can download a petition packet or sign the online petition! All help is appreciated! Also, don't forget to join the "Friends of Skateworld Roller Rink" group on Facebook & read the new Friends of Skateworld Roller Rink blog! Thanks for your support!

Belle Pepper Couture - “My focus is making colorful, fun and fashionable clothing and accessories for pets that are made in the USA, and high quality. I'm working on some different items. New designs that I have been thinking about for a while. New outfits, new fabric patterns for collars, and new fabrics for the fleece vests. Everyday I'm reminded by my sweetheart doggies, Belle, Pepper and Bambi. They always want to be dressed. So I'm always changing their accessories. I love looking at fabric design, color and textures, they give me lots of inspiration. Also, I like to see the current trends of fashion to be inspired to create cool new looks for doggies.”
Velvet Klaw - “I love to work in many different mediums, so I’m always trying something new. This year I have a new line of jewelry made from vintage flatware. I’ve also been working in digital collage and creating fun journals and notebooks and have recently returned my attention to millinery design, so you will see some hats in the fashion show! I love all things vintage and find inspiration from many sources including china, silverware, and textile patterns.”
Meagan Rae Designs - “My designs are fun, funky fashions and accessories inspired by re-inventing re-cycled items for an urban girlie style. New MR Designs include re-fashioned t-shirts paired with full cocktail skirts, accessorized by origami dangle earrings and recycled handbags. I am overwhelmed with inspiration in everything, all of the time. People around me, nature walks with my dog, Sex and the City re-runs, and vintage anything keeps my mind from ever stopping!!!! When I'm focused, the end product is very exciting!”

Vendor participation is $35 dollars, this fee is DUE Thursday, 3/4/2010. If you are interested in participating or would like further information, please send an email to email@example.com
