2012 will mark the 25th anniversary of the Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts. The Professional Arts Coalition of Edmonton (PACE) is planning for a very special event next year on April 2, 2012.
PACE members are invited to recommend a worthy charity to benefit from the proceeds of the silver anniversary event. All recommendations must be received by the deadline of Friday, October 28 in order to be considered for selection.
The charity must:
- be an Edmonton-based organization;
- include an arts component in its operation (e.g., using art as therapy, using art for community building, using art for education purposes, etc.); and
- involve professional artists in its arts-related programming (organizing, coordinating or participating).
Visit the PACE website at www.pacedmonton.com for a full description of eligibility requirements.
In your recommendation, please include a brief description of the charity to clearly explain why the event’s Steering Committee should consider it. The committee will shortlist recommendations based on the indicated criteria and charity description. They will then follow-up with shortlisted charities in order to finalize their decision.
