The organization’s five-year strategic planning is underway with the organization’s new executive director, Terri Hadwin, at the helm. Hadwin took the helm on March 1.

“It's imperative that we create time and space to hear specifically from our community's Indigenous artists and cultural producers," Hadwin said.

Indigenous artists can share their thoughts at the meeting and information collected will be added to what the council already gathered in the fall through online surveys and focus groups.

“All of the ideas we've heard in consultation will help us as we sit down to figure out our specific goals and strategies for the next five years,” Hadwin said.

The meetings will be facilitated by Chris Rose and JP Baker.

Those interested can RSVP to info@kamloopsarts.ca.
