Artbeat…arts & culture from the edge


The Monashee Arts Council is very excited about the enthusiasm and involvement of local residents in our upcoming stage production, Moose Under Coyote Sleeping.  Rehearsals will begin in February and the production is scheduled to take place in Lumby in April of this year.  There are many opportunities to become involved (you don’t have to be on stage!).   For more information, please call Doug at 1-250-547-946.

The Monashee Arts Council supports and hosts many arts events in our community every year.  It is membership renewal time – why not join the Monashee Arts Council?  Memberships are only $15 for the year.  New members (artists and art-supporters alike!) are always welcome.  We live in such an artistically diverse and culturally rich community and there are many opportunities to support and promote the many creative residents among us, as well as to bring in talented people to educate and entertain us from other regions.  Contact Jennifer Greenwood, Arts & Culture Program Coordinator by phone at 778-473-3029 or email at monasheeartscouncil@gmail.com for more information on becoming a member of the arts council.  Thank you!

The Monashee Arts Council invites local organizations to apply for a grant to sponsor visual and performing arts programs in our community. We welcome proposals that include educational or entertainment activities that present the visual and performing arts.

1. Grants are available to any local non-profit group who wants to bring arts activities or events to our community.

2. Proposals must include a project description, budget, and timeline.

3. Deadline for applications is February 28, 2015.

Application forms and guidelines are available from the office or online.

(Please note that this grant program is subject to funding approval from WVPRC/RDNO)
