Federal government announces support for Esplanade

Written by

The City of Medicine Hat will receive multi-year funding of $90,000 ($45,000 in 2015–2016 and $45,000 in 2016–2017) through the Canada Arts Presentation Fund for the Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre.

The final exhibition at the Art Gallery of Swift Current (AGSC) during the city's centennial year provides a fitting reflection on the gallery's contribution to a vibrant art community over the past 40 years.

Joanne Marion, director/curator for the Esplanade Art Gallery was sitting in one of the comfortable chairs near the information desk the morning of Nov. 27. She had a big smile on her face.

On April 17, 1935, a federal parliamentary act created the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration. November, 2014 Jim Commodore one of the early workers for the PFRA near the community of Val Marie, is the subject of a documentary The Last Cowboy which has been a hit on YouTube.

Theo Fleury sits down on the couch in a Medicine Hat office on a Monday afternoon. He looks calm, relaxed, someone at peace. It hasn't always been that way — as anyone who has read his first book, Playing with Fire, can attest.

The NFB Film Club and Medicine Hat Public Library are showing the documentary Forbidden Love on Sunday, Nov. 23 at 2 p.m. in the Medicine Hat Public Library theatre. Admission is free.

The Registered Music Teachers of Swift Current are celebrating Canada Music Week by hosting several events throughout the city.
