REALTORS® Association nominated for Award in the Mayors Celebration of the Arts #yeg #yegre

Thursday, Mayor Stephen Mandel and the Professional Arts Coalition of Edmonton (PACE) announced the nominees for the 25th Annual Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts.

The REALTORS® Association of Edmonton was nominated in the category of Sustained Support for the Arts. The nomination was made by Murray Utas, the Artistic Manager of Azimuth Theatre and producer of the Expanse Movement Arts Festival.

The Association has provided support and sponsorship for up to 16 summer festivals and events per year since 2006 including the International Street Performers, Fringe, Dragon Boats, Heritage Days, EFCL and Symphony under the Sky. Smaller festivals such as Art on Whyte, Silly Summer Parade and the Canoe Theatre Festival have also benefited. This was part of a Community Investment program that provided over $170,000 per year to fund community activities.

The REALTORS® Community Foundation provides about $300,000 a year to local groups that focus on shelter, safety and crime prevention. Over the past 25 years the Foundation has given over $3 million back to the community on behalf of REALTORS®.

The Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts Awards will be presented at a gala performance at the Winspear Centre on April 2, 2012.
