The Flin Flon Arts Council’s Crystal Kolt told the Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce about her recent presentation to the Canadian Arts Summit in Banff, Alberta on does your community know it matters. She outlined the involvement of people in our community in development of the Community Choir, the Arts Council and Culture Days including the dance down Main Street as examples of people being active participants in the arts. Showing a picture she explained here’s hundreds of Flin Flonners including the Mayor, Councilors and our MLAdancing down Main Street. She says if everyone is clapping their hands, singing or dancing you know you are doing something right. She says it tells her that her city is engaged, pioneers or adventurers and creators where more often than not the response to trying something new is why not let’s try.
Kolt adds another example is local people being involved in provincial arts organizations and in attracting provincial and national support for local programs.
