A round table discussion to help shape provincial policy on arts and culture in B.C. will be held in the lakecity this May.

The event will be hosted by the the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society at the arts centre next to city hall from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 14.

The event is held in partnership with the Community Arts Council of Williams Lake, Alliance for Arts and Culture and ArtsBC.

“Please be invited to join your arts, culture, and heritage community colleagues in a provincial conversation about the development of a cultural policy framework for British Columbia,” says arts centre manager Leah Selk.

She says the BC Alliance for Arts + Culture and ArtsBC are holding a province-wide series of Community Cultural Roundtables which are part of the BC Creative Convergence project launched in 2013.

“This is your opportunity to bring your personal, local, and regional perspectives to this important provincial initiative,” Selk says.

She says this is a free community event but people are advised to reserve their place now to ensure a place at the table to join the conversation.

Selk says the society gratefully acknowledges the financial support for the project by the provincial government.
