ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 
NIAGARA ARTISTS CENTRE

Tuesday 18 December 2018 7PM

It’s a potluck!

Join us on TUESDAY 18 DECEMBER 7PM at NAC for a review of the activities of the last year. We’re going to use Power Point. We’re going to make motions. We’re going to elect board directors. We’re going award the volunteer of the year. And best for last, we’re going to adjourn.

There’s a potluck after the meeting where we will acknowledge our good fortune and talk to one another outside of a bureaucratic framework. It all amounts to good times.

STELLAR DJS, EXTRAORDINAY LIBATIONS, PRIZES FOR BEST WEARABLE ART

In homage to the days of taking over a warehouse (courtesy of our friends at WS Tyler) and getting dressed up all freaky-like, NAC is throwing a party in memory of STRUTT. The STRUTT Wearable Art Show was a community favourite, a highlight in the fall calendar, and we miss it! Don’t get us wrong, this party doesn’t signal the end of all things STRUTT, it’s just a friendly reminder that $t. Ca$hrines knows how to have a good time. So put on your craziest outfit à la wearable art and join us at The Odd Fellows’ Temple to get your dance on.

Described as energetic and melodic free jazz inspired by musicians like Ornette Coleman, Archie Shepp, Pharoah Sanders and John Carter, Norway’s Friends & Neighbors create an authentic and acoustic atmosphere that refers back to the political roots of free jazz.
 
Through original and strong compositions, this has resulted in a band sound with strong identity, crystal clear presence and personality. 
 
Their second release Hymn for a Hungry Nation was received with 4 1/2 out of 5 stars in DownBeat Magazine.
