Nobody would accuse Crystal Kolt of lacking ambition.
Seven years in to the annual celebration, the cultural coordinator of the Flin Flon Arts Council has plenty of fresh ideas for this year’s Culture Days.
Kolt plans to dramatically expand the number of Culture Days events to 150, in honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary.
She said planning for this year is still in progress, but it appears likely that goal will be met.
“I want people to realize that everything is possible here. There are so many talented, talented people here,” said Kolt.
While some plans are still tentative, others are more set in stone.
Plans are underway to expand the Wild Things outdoor market, held at Creekside Park.
Preparations for art classes and clinics led by Flin Flon residents, including chalk-painting classes, are also well underway.
Kolt hopes to get businesses on Main Street more involved with the events.
“I’d love to be able to have more of a presence on Main Street on the Friday evening,” she said. “If businesses would be willing to sponsor an artist who could be singing or dancing or painting in their space, it could be really festive for people, zipping around to different stores.”
