New Members join APA
May 29, 2012 | The Atlantic Presenters Association would like to welcome six new members to join in the recent weeks. Below is a little information on each of their organizations.
Atlantic Dance Festival
Dance is an art form which knows no boundaries. It moves beyond linguistic, cultural, political and geographical frontiers. Inspired by this philosophy, DansEncorps Productions Inc. has established the Atlantic Dance Festival in order to bring together representatives of various dance sectors in a collective celebration of artistic excellence. Celebrating its 6th edition, the team is proud of its past accomplishments. Wishing to offer a more complete and diversified program, the Altantic Dance Festival moved to Moncton in 2007. In 2005, with the help and support of the municipality of Cap-Pelé and the Aboiteau Park, the pre-festival was presented, and the first festival in 2006. Many dancers and artists from New-Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island participated since the beginning of the Festival. Moreover, students from provincial dance schools were able to present their work non-competitively and share their visions of dance with the general public.
Eastport Peninsula Heritage Society
The Eastport Peninsula Heritage Society, owner and operator of the Beaches Heritage Centre, is the "Winner of the 2012 Doug Wheeler Tourism Award". We are dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the natural and cultural heritage of the Eastport Peninsula and all of Newfoundland. Through our theatre programming, art gallery exhibits and related events, we celebrate the spectrum of traditional and modern arts for which Newfoundland is renowned.
Friends of Writers at Woody Point
The Writers at Woody Point literary festival in Woody Point, Bonne Bay, Newfoundland had its inaugural season in 2004. The festival is organized and presented by Friends of Writers at Woody Point and, each year, has played to sold-out audiences. This year, as in the past, the event will be hosted by CBC Radio’s Shelagh Rogers, host of “The Next Chapter" a show about Canadian writing and writers.
Cove Music is a non-profit organization of like-minded Sandy Cove residents, who seek to expand both the opportunity for musicians to perform, and the availability of quality entertainment in the local area, while supporting community projects.
