Description: The proponent is hosting a Community Arts Festival event as a step toward creating an Arts Council. While building on the strength of existing events such as the Lakes District Performing Arts Festival, the project is helping to meet the requirements to become an Arts Council, create a yearly event involving local residents, and encourage Aboriginal arts and culture awareness within the community. Artists are invited from all over the province to participate.
