The Flin Flon Arts Council held their annual meeting Monday night. Board President Linda Eryou reported in spite of the disruption caused by the pandemic starting in March both the Flin Flon Arts Council and their member organizations have had a very busy year. She mentioned the opportunity to welcome and host the Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba as well as the Governor General during Culture Days, many great performances and the annual Arts and Crafts Sale in November. Other performances had to be postponed or cancelled. In February they hosted representatives of the Manitoba Arts Council, Canadian Heritage and the Canada Council for the Arts and in March continued their Inspiration Series Developing a Northern Vision.
Highlights were reported from their eleven standing committees and twelve organizations that fall under their umbrella. There are plans for the Christmas Arts and Crafts Sale and they hope to put on a Christmas and spring concert as well as hosting some touring performers. Unfortunately the Northern Lights Dance Academy had to be cancelled for this year.
There are two vacancies on their board and if you are interested you can contact the Arts Council.
