Wood Buffalo Vibrant Culture Summit Featured on RETROactive Blog

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Recently, the Region hosted its first "Vibrant Culture Summit" at MacDonald Island Park.  Various community members joined together to talk about their ideas on culture in our region.  The day featured Gord Hume as the keynote speaker, three panel discussions about the City Centre Redevelopment Action Plan, the Wood Buffalo Arts Council, and Heritage, and closed with round table discussions that focused on culture, arts and heritage. 

During the Heritage panel presentation, Brenda Manweiler, Municipal Heritage Services Officer with the Province of Alberta,  presented some information about her work and the office she represents.  Recently, Brenda highlighted the Vibrant Culture Summit on RETROactive, a blog that highlights Alberta's historic places.
