And Simon Brault, outgoing Canada Council vice-chair, considers social media’s impact on the arts.

Simon Brault, outgoing vice-chair of the Canada Council on the Arts and author of No Culture, No Future, says Canadian artists are great storytellers in theatre, novels, movies. ‘We have this capacity to articulate stories that are very compelling that interest the rest of the world. We have great performers for the size of our nation.’
