2019 Cultural Ambassador for Nelson Nomination Period Open!

2018 Recipient

SEARCH FOR NELSON’S 2019 CULTURAL AMBASSADOR IS ON


October 2, 2018

The Cultural Development Committee (CDC), on behalf of the City of Nelson, is currently inviting applications and nominations for the position of Nelson’s 2019 Cultural Ambassador in the category of Theatre/Performance. The award comes with a $1000 honorarium and the winner will be announced in December.

Applications and nominations should be for professionals, either individuals or groups, working in the field of Theatre/Performance. Preference will be given to those who will be performing outside of the City limits, in addition to within Nelson.

"The Cultural Ambassador program is entering its tenth year, and the response we’ve had from the community has been tremendous,” says Sydney Black, Chair of the Cultural Development Committee. “The roster of talented professionals we’ve had representing our City is impressive:  dancer Slava Doval, writer Eileen Delehanty Pearkes, visual artist Ian Johnston, musician Bessie Wapp, filmmaker Amy Bohigian, actor Lucas Myers, dancer Hiromoto Ida, author Anne DeGrace, fibre artist Angelika Werth, and the Corazon Youth Choir. It’s a wonderful opportunity for the City to recognize and reward the exceptional talent we have here.”


The CDC established this honour in recognition of local individual artists, groups or collectives who have achieved a high standard of excellence in their artistic discipline and who are active not only in Nelson’s cultural community but extend their talents to other communities and countries. The Cultural Ambassador is expected to represent and promote the City of Nelson on their travels, increasing the visibility and cultural reputation of Nelson. In return, the Cultural Ambassador can use their official designation in their own promotional materials, programs and fundraising.


Deadline for submissions is October 30th, 2018. 


Please contact Joy Barrett, the City of Nelson’s Cultural Development Officer at cultural@nelson.ca for an application or nomination form or for further information.
