The Flin Flon Arts Council has helped spearhead a Youth Arts Council in our community. The Arts Council’s Crystal Kolt says they realized a lot of young people are involved in the arts so they wanted to give them an opportunity to do what they want to do and the Manitoba Arts Network offered seed money to get started with a performing arts group coming to the community to both work with youth and to give a performance. She says this is their first year and there’s a group of amazing artists including Mikylo Odut who everybody knows as the flutist, Pearl Tippett, Naomi Rempel and Lalain Bashir who have spearheaded this group.
Kolt adds the group is bringing in Speed Control from Yellowknife to work with kids who are interested in performing rock music and producing shows next Wednesday at 7 at Johnny’s Social Club and they will also have a masterclass that day at Hapnot Collegiate from 11 to 2. For information on the youth group and the events contact the Arts Council at 204-687-5974.
