Scholarship & Awards Ceremony
Volunteer Appreciation event 2019

We held our 2019 Scholarship & Awards Ceremony and Volunteer Appreciation event on May 31st at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery's "Remarkable Red Deer" permanent exhibition.

We were so pleased to hand out multiple awards and scholarships to deserving honourees and we enjoyed a screening of "Power on Water" - an acclaimed short film made by past Emerging Artist Award-winner, Rueben Tschetter. It won the audience choice award at Central Alberta Film Fest 2019, too!

We had refreshments, mingled, and even handed out some prizes to our volunteers and members!

The Red Deer Arts Council so appreciates all the work of our many volunteers and members, ensuring we have a strong presence in our community! We could not accomplish all that we do without your help and support. Thank you all for your ongoing commitment to making Red Deer a dynamic community that celebrates and supports the arts.

Please join us in congratulating these exceptional artists on their hard work and commitment to their personal development in their respective creative fields! You can find out more about them under the Scholarships & Awards tab!
