StarkLight Press attended the Annual General Meeting of the South Peace Regional Arts Council today and is happy to report we received an enthusiastic welcome into the arts community in the Peace Region!
The South Peace Regional Arts Council is an umbrella organization that promotes constant activities in all artistic fields. We had our first look inside the amazing space of the Calvin Kruk Centre for the Arts, which kindly hosted the meeting. The building hosts not only revolving art shows, but offers theatre and concert space as well as practice space for local dance, theatrical and music groups. It also boasts a delicious smelling cafe and restaurant :0)
At the meeting today, we were pleased to meet heads of the local artists’ societies, including:
The Potters’ Guild
The Quilting Society
The Peace Region Songwriters’ Society
The Historical Society
The Archives and Roots Society
The South Peace Players Theatrical Group
Local Choral Groups supported by Kiwanis
The Art Gallery Society
Child and Youth Activities Council
and more, if you can believe that!
StarkLight Press is happy to support all of the many activities that the Arts Council has planned for this year, including two multicultural days and Circus Camp for Kids. We are hoping to attract even more local writers, artists, photographers and, most of all, readers, for our fascinating and original fiction and nonfiction.
Our press is delighted to join the ranks of this varied and talented group of dynamic art promoters and craftsmen, and look forward to keeping all of our fans posted about the great events coming up in the Peace Region!
