NT Arts Council AGM coming

North Thompson Arts Council’s AGM, Sept. 29, 7 p.m. at their new home in Dutch Lake Community Centre

North Thompson Arts Council’s AGM is set for Sept. 29, at 7 p.m. at our new home in Dutch Lake Community Centre, 209 Dutch Lake Road in Clearwater.  (Coming from Barriere or Little Fort turn left on Old Highway 5 at the Wells Gray Inn.  Turn left again onto Dutch Lake Road at the police station.  The community centre is in the old Dutch Lake School right next to the police station.)

Some directors are willing to let their names stand for this coming year, but there are several spots open on the board of directors. If you are interested in becoming a board member but are unable to attend the meeting please email me a letter of intent addressed to the NTAC Board of Directors.

2014/2015 is an exciting jump for NTAC as we have a home base in Clearwater to establish in the new community centre.  We have several ongoing events and festivals to look forward to, and new members to welcome.  The board is looking at making changes to the membership fee and discussing the new gallery and workshop.

Membership in NTAC is for all types of  artists and craftspeople: painters, photographers, writers, singers, musicians, performers, quilters, weavers, potters, etc.  Its also for people who just plain love arts and culture.  You don’t have to be a practicing artist!

Membership in NTAC comes with many new benefits this year: exhibition opportunities, drop in at the studio, special rates for workshops, and more.

If you want to lend a hand at the planning and administrative level, we would love to have you.  If you just want to support NTAC by becoming a member, we would love to have you too!

Please RSVP if you plan on attending and I will forward you the agenda. We would love to see you there.

Contact: Charlene Lau, NTAC President, call 250-674-8775 or email: norththompstonartscouncil@yahoo.ca
