Remembering Mavor Moore

Mavor Moore was “a true renaissance man — a gifted writer and performer, inspired cultural visionary and genuine friend to artists everywhere. He had an important sense of history, having been active in the arts in the difficult days before the creation of the Canada Council when the establishment of professional theatre, dance and music organizations posed a huge challenge and the principle of public funding of the arts was no more than a dream of the Massey Royal Commission. And he remained conscious through his working life of the infinite possibilities of Canadian cultural expression, provided it could be unleashed.”
