With somewhat 2020 vision, Donna Kane and Kit Fast were on hand this morning to speak to the PRRD about what the Peace Liard Regional Arts Council have been up to.
“2020 brought the world Covid-19. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, the Peace Liard Regional Arts Council was able to carry out its programming without having to cancel any activities. All programs, projects, and activities were carried out virtually,” said Kane.
Kane added a grant from the PRRD has greatly assisted PLRAC’s programming in all its forms. In 2020, the PRRD funds helped the PLRAC leverage grants from outside the region (such as the Canada Council for the Arts, BC Arts Council, and the Province of BC Community Gaming Grant), furthering the ability of the PLRAC to increase awareness of the significant arts, culture, and heritage that exists in northeastern BC.
