Manitoba Showcase is coming to Flin Flon Friday and Saturday next week. Executive Director of the Manitoba Arts Network Rosanne Harder says the purpose is to showcase 15 artists from across Canada, give them a chance to perform for rural presenters and then these presenters will hopefully book some of these acts the following season. She says in any given year it amounts to anywhere from 50 to 60 performances throughout Manitoba.
The showcases are open to the public in the Community Hall next Friday at 7:30 and Saturday at 1:30 and 7:30 with tickets at Northern Rainbows End and at the door.
The weekend will be attended by representatives of Arts Councils from across Manitoba and will include a conference that will provide information on managing and promoting organizations. Harder says they have been in The Pas and Thompson and it was time to come to Flin Flon the place that’s been known as the cultural capital of Manitoba.
