Cultural Development Meeting

I have recently seen an article in the paper that prompted anybody interested in local arts, culture and heritage (I’m looking at you, visual communications students and alumni) to attend a meeting coming up. Every month the Cultural Development program in the city hosts a luncheon where people get together to network and discuss cultural happening and events. Over the years, the attendance has been dwindling since it started 10 years ago. The purpose of the article written in the paper, and even the purpose of me posting here is to maybe bring some old and new faces to the meetings. This meeting, Carol Beatty (Manager of Cultural Development for the City of Medicine Hat) will be talking about a program called “Cultural Capitals of Canada”. The program supports communities that are engaged in the arts and culture through money grants – which would be greatly support local artists as well as bring more art events to the city.

The meeting is to take place on January 29th, 10AM to noon at the Esplanade Studio Theatre. Anybody that will be attending are asked to RSVP to Terry Gill at 403-502-8795 or
