This year’s Cultural Summit features Canadian artist and speaker, Jowi Taylor, of Six String Nation. The Summit, which is organized by the Town of Stony Plain and the Cultural Roundtable Committee, is Saturday, May 28, 2016 from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. at the Best Western Sunrise Inns and Suites.
The Summit is an opportunity to share the progress made over the past year on the Cultural Master Plan progress. Developed in 2012, the Cultural Master Plan’s purpose is to help shape the cultural development of the community over the next decade.
“The Cultural Summit is intended to connect community members and encourage organizations to become more involved in the community’s cultural development,” says Chantelle Held, Cultural Development Officer. “It is also an opportunity for attendees to share successes, discuss challenges, and ask questions.”
Guest speaker, Jowi Taylor, will be speaking about his incredible experience building Voyageur, a guitar made from more than 60 pieces of Canadian history.
