The Castlegar Cultural Advisory Committee will host a round table meeting on Tuesday, June 12, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at the Castlegar & District Recreation Complex, Selkirk Room.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss future objectives of the committee, what our vision is and possible actions we can take for our continued growth in culture.

The Committee also serves as a liaison function for organizations in the community who are engaged in the development and delivery of cultural programs and initiatives.

Projects that have been identified and completed are the adoption of a cultural policy for the City of Castlegar, a cultural website designed to market cultural organizations in and around Castlegar, a Cultural A- Fair run for two years to educate our community on the wealth of arts/culture/heritage we have and to create an opportunity to network with other organizations.

The Kootenay Festival; the newest project is the now in it’s second year, giving residents of the East and West Kootenays and visitors to our area an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of cultures and artistic expression that exists in our region. Great strides have been made for culture in our community, we want to continue to move forward and work together.
