Artistic community invited to reimagine the future

EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick — The Edmundston Arts Centre has created a Facebook group for Madawaska artists, artisans, creators, technicians and cultural stakeholders to discuss the revival of the arts and culture sector.

A first virtual meeting will take place on Monday, June 8.

The Facebook group “Communauté artistique du Madawaska” is now online and is a forum for exchange and discussion for people in the arts and culture sector,  strongly shaken by the COVID-19 crisis.

In addition to breaking the isolation that has persisted since last March, this platform will make it possible to share best practices, the latest news, professional development and marketing opportunities and facilitate contact between members.

The group’s first public consultation on Monday, June 8, via the Zoom virtual platform, will provide an opportunity to take the pulse of the community, answer questions, find solutions for restarting activities and define how the Arts Centre can help move forward.

All Madawaska artists, artisans, creators, technicians and cultural sector stakeholders are invited to join the Facebook group and participate in the exchanges.

Two online sessions will be offered on Monday, June 8, 2020, the first from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and the second from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Please note that registration is free.
