Community Banner Update Project
You have likely seen this incredible piece of community art during Lumby Days or when you’ve been in the White Valley Community Centre.  Created a few years back under the guidance of some very talented community members, the Monashee Arts Council is once again working with artists to update the sponsorship panels that border this piece of fabric art.  If your business/group is interested in purchasing a sponsorship panel on our community banner ($20 each) please contact Robin LeDrew at 250-547-6397 or stop by to see Jennifer at the office during regular MAC hours.

Life is a Cabaret!
An ambitious group of MAC members is working to bring a Cabaret to our community this year.  We are looking for people who would like to be part of our support/creative team and, of course, we are looking for performers!  We are currently accepting applications at the office (photos appreciated from performers). For more information please stop by the office or contact Belinda at 250-547-0299 or by email at

Artist of the Month – Nancy Vince
The Village Gallery is featuring MAC member, Nancy Vince, as their Artist of the Month during March 2018.  Nancy’s “Happy Art” is full of colour and sure to bring a smile to your face.  Make a point of stopping by this month to see her incredible display of diverse creative works and if you happen to stop by on a Monday afternoon you might just get to meet the artist in person!
