Our Vision for Arts Days
Our vision is to have Cochrane Has Arts Spots throughout the Town of Cochrane. These spots would be businesses, on verandas, on Centennial Plaza and other spots that become available. We would like the public to be exposed to the arts as they go about their business on Saturday (Sunday if there are enough artists to go around). We see visual artists painting, potting, creating; fabric artists stitching, sewing knitting;musicians playing, singing and dancing, writers reading and sharing their words. Museums will also be offering.
Sunday afternoon we will have our Artisan Market@ Cochrane on the Centennial Plaza from noon to five. We have room for more vendors that day if you are interested in selling your wares. It is $15.00 for a 10 X 10 spot and for insurance purposes, you will need to be a member of ACFC.
If you are interested in being an "Artist in Residence" on Oct. 1st or providing your business for a Cochrane Has Arts SPOT, contact
President: Ruth Soroka 403-850-7908
We would like musicians of all kinds: instrumentalists, vocalists dancers, duets, trios, quartets, full orchestra and choirs. Your time is volunteer, but you can busk if you want on the streets of Cochrane or ask permission of coffee houses, businesses or restaurants to busk on their premises. Please contact Michelle Boudreau
