The Programming Committee plans, develops, organizes and implements workshops and special events that will support the arts community in its development, with an emphasis on representing all sectors (visual, literary, performing and cultural) equitably, and geared to arts organizations and artists in Red Deer and area.

We further promote ongoing networking to share knowledge and experience via our workshops and social events, like “Where’s My Tribe?”, and an arts and culture social at the Troubled Monk. The event is held on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm as a means of furthering connections between various artists of all genres. Troubled Monk #1, 5551 45 Street (Cronquist Business Park)

Tonight's Social Event will include Albertus Koett, Artistic Director of Tree House Youth Theatre and Delores Coghill of The Cronquist House and Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society to speak about upcoming news of their organizations!

This engaging session took place on November 14th and was very informative. Should you wish to learn more about the presentation given, please contact the office and Suzanne can provide you more details.
"At this session, the presenter will provide you with an overview of what SOCAN (Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada) does as a performing rights organization (PRO) and the role it plays within the larger music industry. We go over what types of performance royalties are paid out to songwriters/producers, how you can maximize your royalties and ensure that you’re collecting the most money for all your public performances. We cover the benefits that SOCAN members have access to (“The SOCAN Advantage”), SOCAN Foundation funding, and the functions of SOCAN’s A&R team—how we can help support you in your songwriting/craft development and connect you to the SOCAN network of songwriters, producers, composers, and music publishers."
