Forgot to mention at meeting, Artsvest application is in, it’s mostly accurate. i dont think i got the budget quite right, but it’s representative. If we qualify it would mean up to $5000 in matching funding for anything we successfully apply for over the next year. Ann Marshall, Ann MacIvor, Jill Mayne and George Bowden would each do a small part of the work, which if what they say is correct only amounts to about 10 hours of programming time over the next 6 months.

Barry met with music committee:

-3-11 pm Barry will be in charge of musical activities, mostly featuring mystic groove with guests (local musicians joining in to do a few of their pieces with the group.
– Jason Titian is up for doing a demo artist thing
– Budget for music – Barry requested 1500 from art rave funds, but doesn’t know the actual figure of what is apportioned.
-Barry has brought up idea of sponsorship at the TD, he is pursuing, also thought it would be good to have people go approach other local businesses, would need volunteers for that.
Ann Marshall attended meeting with overall planning committees:
Roll out of Canada Day as follows (thus far):

At the site all day there are the kids games being done by parks and rec, and the activities provided by art rave, arts and craft vendors, etc. HMCS Edmonton will be in town for the event, so there will be some activities around that, but as yet unknown. Lots of jawing about syncing parade and triconic and those logistics. I let them know what we were planning, lanterns, kids activities, plein air etc., and offered to liase only with the vendor planning, to keep them apprised of plien air participants and demo artists etc.
IMPORTANT: Theresa is stressing the importance of clear standardized formats for promotions, would like each group involved to have one person who will meet to get standard formats (colour font sponsor logo sizing etc) for the overall event. Ann MacIvor volunteered for this.
Lantern Updates From Colleen Clancy:
She had found a source for lantern paper, will cost 270 plus shipping. Members present approved. Approval requested and given by email response from board members.
Will talk about honorariums for artists at next meeting.
