The Wood Buffalo Excellence in Arts Awards is an annual program that recognizes and celebrates excellence in various areas of the arts throughout our region. The program also builds awareness of the incredible contribution artists make to Wood Buffalo. Each award is handcrafted by a local artist, providing further investment in our creative economy. The “Buffys” invest in the future of our growing arts community by supporting our most exceptional artists. The recognition received by each award winner will raise their profile, build their portfolio, and allow them to compete and thrive as an artists within our community and beyond the borders of Wood Buffalo. The Arts Awards will be given out during a showcase event on October 21, 2017. The focus of this event is to celebrate the achievements of our local artists through high energy, poignant performances and exhibitions that highlight all that our vibrant arts community has to offer. The theme for this year’s awards showcase is “The Midnight Speakeasy”, which promises to provide an exciting back drop for the evening’s entertainment. Tickets will be available for the public to come enjoy a night of entertainment and support the arts. More information about the Arts Awards event will be released later this summer.
