The Flin Flon Arts Council held their annual general meeting Thursday night. Cultural Coordinator Crystal Kolt reported they again faced challenges due to COVID-19.Much of the regular performance season was cancelled but they carried on. They supported Home Routes-Prairie Panorama, SHIPS:Love Loss and a Desire to Connect, two Ham Sandwich performances Ripcord and The Butler Did It, the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, Woody Holler and the Christmas Arts and Crafts Sale. They also featured the Summer Music Series Street Corner Concerts, Culture Days, an Introduction to Drama workshop with the Manitoba Theatre for Young People, the Community Garden and helped with the Trout Festival and Blueberry Jam Music Gathering.
Kolt added most notable is the work they did through the Uptown Emporium growing since its inception from 11 to over 111 vendors. They also developed a business strategy and conducted a survey throughout the north to collect data on northern artists and artisans.
