Arts to take centre stage in B.C.

Across the province, attention and recognition to be focused on the arts from April 21 to 27

Arts week is April 21-27

“Every year, British Columbia’s creative artists and strong cultural organizations use their talent and energy to ensure the success of BC Arts and Culture Week,” BC Arts Council chair Stan Hamilton is quoted in an April 12 press release from the BC Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

“The BC Arts Council is pleased to have supported many of these participants who will be sharing their talent. BC Arts and Culture Week offers a great opportunity for British Columbians to share council’s pride and pleasure in the

excellence and professionalism of arts and culture in our province.”

The special week set aside for recognition of the arts in this province runs from April 21-27, and is a time to offer opportunities to take in a number of events across the province.

More than 20,000 B.C. artists will be involved in the week long celebration which will include art crawls, public art projects, art exhibitions, arts festivals, concerts and First Nations celebrations.

Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Bennett, in the April 12 press release, states:

“British Columbia is blessed by inspirational cultural traditions, from the artistic legacy of First Nations to the creative innovations of contemporary art. By celebrating BC Arts and Culture Week, we recognize B.C.’s diverse cultural heritage and on-going artistic excellence. I urge all British Columbians to support BC Arts and Culture Week activities in communities throughout the province.”
