Celebrating Arts and Culture in Nanaimo and Area

Women of Note (notable women who believe in the arts) have returned and their first new artistic endeavour is a delectable luncheon on Thursday, November 1, at the Nanaimo Museum. Sponsored by the Vancouver Island Symphony, the luncheon begins with networking at 11:30 a.m. followed by creative eats and great company in the surrounds of the ‘Spirit of Life’ fibre-arts exhibit. Special guest Sasha Angus, CEO of the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation, will speak on ‘The Value of the Arts in Nanaimo’.

“We are so excited to have Women of Note back in action,” says co-chair Marianne Turley. “We are coming together to celebrate, support and create an awareness of arts and culture in Nanaimo.”

In 2008, Nanaimo was given the title of Cultural Capital of Canada, and in 2011 Commercial Street, home to several arts organizations, ranked number one in the ‘Great Streets’ category in the Canadian Institute of Planners ‘Great Places in Canada’ contest.

Adds Turley, “The City has recognized and embraces the importance of arts and culture in the community. They are economic drivers and give a community soul.”

Tickets for this delicious event are $32 and can be purchased through the VI Symphony Office, 250-754-0177 and by e-mailing Funds raised support the VI Symphony’s Education Shows in 2013.
