The Arts Council is holding the Inspiration 2 conference titled Knowledge and Development. The Council’s Crystal Kolt says it will explore the arts and cultural role in community and economic development with three guests Janice Price CEO of the Banff Center of the Arts and Creativity, Jean Giguere who has been honored for her volunteer role including with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and Manitoba Theatre Center and Dorothy Dobbie who is a former MP and owns the publishing company Pegasus books who Kolt says have done that. She explains they sort of built some amazing things from nothing in some cases so they’re really hoping to glean some information from these really amazing women and help them in their direction towards determining whether there’s something arts and culture can do more than its doing already to support our community that way.
The three will meet with the municipalities, school division, festivals, arts organizations, Friendship Center and North Central Canada Centre of the Arts and Environment planners. You can learn more about the three tomorrow morning at 8:30 with Raphael Saray here on 102.9 CFAR.
