Burlington Arts Collective

There is something truly troubling about this and it's not the first time my colleagues or myself have felt unwelcome in our own city.
This sums up a lot of my mixed feelings towards Burlington as a city and trying to make a living as an artist.

Most of us make our livings right here and pay thousands of dollars a year in property taxes alone, yet more and more we're seen as a "nuisance" to those that may not directly enjoy the services we provide to create atmosphere, attract patrons to local business and yup you guessed it, major tourism dollars that The City enjoys.

They boast about their "homegrown talent" and use it for marketing, yet will never go to bat for musicians and instead hide behind a facade of "we love music! Look at our festival!".
Don't get me wrong, yes, there are some who support at a government level and those few, you know who you are and we thank you for standing with us, but Brad's story below just reinforces how we are being ousted from one of the last places to play in our own city - downtown, at a private business, during reasonable hours etc.
I know now I may be rambling a bit but this just gets me fired up for all sorts of reasons I won't get into.

Anyways I'll post exactly what went down in the comments for anyone who cares to follow along... or you can dig through Brad's original post and see this is not a whiney, entitled "art is hard" post. This is a case of someone being told they can no longer do the job they've been hired to do, with no notice, no severance pay, and no protection of his livelihood whatsoever because of one entitled resident with nothing better to do on a Holiday than complain.
