Wild words north

While nothing can replace in-person events, going virtual has provided us with unique opportunities such as partnering with Toronto’s Word on the Street and bringing in outstanding moderators via Zoom.

And this year, all events are free and available to anyone in the world.

From song writing to storytelling, from student writers to those who have been creating for decades, Wild Words North hopes to encourage our region’s writers to share and to learn and in so doing broaden PLRAC’s mandate to provide opportunities for arts and culture and heritage for the people in northeast BC.

We hope you enjoy the discussions, presentations, readings and performances.

The PLRAC thanks its many sponsors, volunteers, and all the writers who have made the 2020 Wild Words North possible.

Festival Plaza Call for Artists

With support from the Fort St. John Arts Council, the City of Fort St. John is hosting a public art competition that offers local artists the opportunity to leave a lasting impression in the Centennial Park Festival Plaza. Artists are invited to submit concepts for the creation of the cut-out imagery that will adorn the fire obelisks. Each fire obelisks has four flat metal sides that will have cut-out designs featuring the winning artwork from this competition. Winners will be selected by a three-member selection panel, who will score the submission using a criteria matrix, and each winning submission will receive a $2,000 honorarium.
