Tumbler Ridge Community Arts Council hosted Peace-Liard Regional Arts Council (PLRAC) meeting in the Community Centre. PLRAC is a registered society formed of the Community Arts Councils of Fort nelson, Fort St. John, Hudson?s Hope, Chetwynd, Dawson Creek and Tumbler Ridge. Our pioneer-resident Janet Hartford was the first representative for Tumbler Ridge in this group in 1984. PLRAC sponsors regional events that often move from community to community. Example of this is the Juried Exhibit that will be hosted by our community in the spring 2009. The PLRAC was pleased by the presentation about this years event at the Gwillim Lake called Creative Peace organized by the Terry Lansdowne Foundation from August 15th to 17th. Creative Peace offers three days of workshops and lectures encouraging the participants to explore their talents or seek creative ? outside the box solutions to presented challenges of the changing environment.
