Ukrainian Canadian Artists

Baran by Audrey Uzwyshyn

Artists, musicians, music groups, photographers, dancers, dance groups, festivals, film directors, writers, craft artisans and singers - whoever is pursing an artistic passion with our Ukrainian roots, it is time to connect!  The Ukrainian Canadian Congress has launched a National Arts Council with the goal of creating a network of Ukrainian Canadian artists for promoting visibility and recognition within Canada.   Their website is http://nac.ucc.ca/

This is exciting news - especially because the website will welcome artists to link directly through http://nac.ucc.ca/artist-directory/submit/   to submit their individual or group information.  The website will feature a Ukrainian Canadian Artists Directory, a Resource Section and Profiles.  Celebrating one of our richest commodities - our culture, Ukrainian Canadians have a voice -let's get together and hear each other, and help each other!  Joining is free!

Please contribute your comments, any information about local arts organizations in your community who support the arts (Edmonton Arts Council, Ontario Craft Council, Canada Council, etc).  This support will save time and help develop the Resources section of the website.

For more information please contact  Andrea Kopylech - co-Chair UCC NAC at akopylech@gmail.com  or at 780-288-0911.
