On November 24, a group of local residents who coordinated the Alberta Arts Days 2011 celebrations in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo held a wrap-up meeting to discuss hosting another event next year.
In 2011, the local Alberta Arts Days celebration incorporated a wide variety of events that highlighted and celebrated literary, visual and performing arts. The coordinating committee is happy with the level of excitement and community support that surrounded Alberta Arts Days. The growth in partnerships and the high number of events held during Wood Buffalo Arts Days 2011 exemplifies how the arts community is flourishing in Wood Buffalo.
The planning committee is looking forward to continuing the annual Arts Days celebrations by working with the Culture Network, a local community group that meets monthly to discuss local arts and culture topics. By connecting the Wood Buffalo Arts Days with the Culture Network, the group will begin to discuss plans for the 2012 celebration.
