ReDesign Rupert to host session on Community Development and the Arts Tomorrow evening

The Community Development Institute at UNBC has an interesting evening planned for Prince Rupert's Arts community tomorrow evening, as the the CDI and Redesign Rupert host another of their popular Community Speaker events, this one putting the focus on how Community Development and the Arts share common goals.

The featured speaker on the evening is Genevieve Bucher, the President of BC Artscape, a non profit organization that develops and manages unique cultural spaces.

She will outline how BC Artscape serves both the needs of artists and cultural organizations as well as the larger community.

Ms. Bucher will be speaking to the value of the Arts as part of community development and will be providing some examples as to how BC Artscape has achieved those goals across the province.

You can review some of those projects and learn more about the program from the BC Artspace website here.

The Moderator for the evening is Marleen Morris, the Co-Director of the Community Development Institute at UNBC.

Laurie Gray, President of the Prince Rupert Community Arts Council will also be part of the evening's discussion, serving as the community respondent for the session.

Thursday's Speaker Series event takes place at UNBC's space at the Prince Rupert campus of Northwest Community College, with the Multipurpose room at the college the venue for the night from 7 to 8:30 PM.

Admission to the event is Free and refreshments will be served.
