RDC Arts Centre Advisory Committee

  • Jul. 20, 2016 3:45 p.m.

The Red Deer College Arts Centre Advisory Committee is seeking to fill three member-at-large positions, representing the community, for a two-year term.

In the early 1980s, RDC constructed a facility that offered much needed space for its expanding performing arts curriculum. Recognizing its importance in a growing City, the City of Red Deer contributed financially towards its construction. In 1983, the two parties entered into an agreement to provide community organizations and the public of Red Deer reasonable access to the facility and to promote its use for the mutual benefit of both the community and College. What followed was the establishment of a community advisory committee that would act to facilitate open communications between the community and Red Deer College.

This committee is comprised of representatives from Red Deer College, the City of Red Deer, as well as members of the public with an interest in community access to this facility. The role of this committee is to act in advisory capacity to Red Deer College on all matters relating to the intent of the agreement, including a review the Red Deer College Arts Centre annual report.

The committee is seeking members to fill three positions which include two members-at-large – representing the general community. These members may reside within or outside the City of Red Deer limits, so long as it is within the geographical area which the College is generally considered to draw from. Representatives will demonstrate an understanding of the enhanced community benefit of having access to this facility.

The committee is also seeking one member-at-large – representing ongoing regular users of the facility. This representative will provide the perspective of an ongoing regular user of the facility, preferably drawing on experience of either being or having been a member of a group that regularly accesses the facility.

Meetings are held no more than once per month and committee members do not receive any form of remuneration. Expressions of interest will be considered and voted upon by voting committee representatives. Representatives or staff of RDC and the City of Red Deer will not be considered at this time due to a full complement of representation of these parties

Expressions of Interest may be submitted to CultureMailbox@reddeer.ca by Aug. 26th. Please indicate why you are interested in joining the committee and which population you are interested in representing (i.e. general community or ongoing regular user). Also include information on the perspective and experience you would bring to the committee, demonstrating why you would make an ideal representative.
