The second annual Cultureville competition is being held to recognize the province’s rich cultural diversity and is part of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s 75th anniversary celebrations as well as Alberta Arts Days. A CBC in-house panel winnowed down the approximately 50 nominees based on community spirit, originality and passion for culture, and on August 16 announced the shortlist of six communities, which included Tsuu T’ina, the only First Nation in the competition. The other shortlisted communities are Jasper, Rosebud, Peace River, Camrose and Red Deer, all featuring an array of visual art, music and theatre presented through concerts and festivals. Public voting for the finalist begins on September 6, and the winner will be announced on September 29.
