The Manitoban: Reopened GOSA faces challenges

November 5, 2014 — 

The U of M’s student paper, The Manitoban, reported that “Fine arts students and other students in arts-related faculties claim that the [Gallery of Student Art, or GOSA] will have to overcome major challenges after UMSU made budget cuts to eliminate a paid co-ordinator position in September.

Its budget of $12,000 was cut to $3,000 by eliminating the gallery coordinator position.

The article states that, “The co-ordinator has been replaced with what UMSU calls the ‘GoSA ambassador program.’ The program, which is run by UMSU services administrator Amanda Jonson, is designed to assemble a group of volunteers who can collectively run the gallery.”

Some say that the unexpected cuts “has resulted in confusion among volunteers and has diminished the ability of the gallery to show quality exhibits.”
