Community Arts in InterPLAY

For this year’s InterPLAY, the organizers would like to have a large community arts component in order to showcase the talented artist of our Region.
A Cultural Coordinator from the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo will facilitate this initiatives to begin with but with the intention to hand this back to the community; it will be up to members of the arts and cultural community to manage and organize this initiative.

If you would like to be involved with any of the following initiatives, or if you have ideas for other initatives, please contact me as soon as possible:
* Display of local art in the Peter Pond Mall
* An arts /cultural demonstration tent
