This holiday season, all of our Supporters are entered to win an $800 Shopping Spree Giveaway!

Following a presentation that illuminated the reasons for their grant application to city council, Oliver Hachmeister got into more detail about the things that will make the North Peace Cultural Centre more spectacular this upcoming year.

“The centre is restoring a direction that was set for us back in 1992,” he said. “We’re encouraging the arts, we’re trying to create a location where – if there’s a need for the arts, we will try to fulfill it.”

In the meeting on Monday, representatives from the cultural centre said they have quite a few goals in mind for the future, including re-engaging with the community, identifying funding opportunities and reinforcing board responsibility.

To accomplish these, the NPCC will be improving financial management, communications, public relations, accessibility, and finding funding opportunities.

Part of the shift can be attributed to new management at the beginning of 2015 that changed things, and agreed that 2015 marked a significant shift for the cultural centre.

Looking to the future, plans are already underway in the arts and culture community of Fort St. John, including the NPCC, to celebrate many milestones in 2017.

In the 2015/16 season, a few big names will be coming to perform at the cultural centre. Tonight, Brent Butt will be performing for a sold out show – and children’s songwriter Fred Penner is expected to land down in February.

Hachmeister says these initiatives trying to reconnect with the community as a whole.
