March 21, 2013 was our AGM, with a Where’s My Tribe event! Following the AGM, Elvin Berthiaume performed his own music for your entertainment; a mix and mingle continues to familiarize yourself with fellow RDAC members should be fun! We welcome new members at all times!
There are still postions available for our committees, if you are seeking to get involved with Arts and Culture in Red Deer. We love to share our work with volunteers and they have a great time helping in various capacities from committees to First Fridays Red Deer. Get involved, join today!
The Programming Committee is seeking volunteers to help with formulating plans for new workshops and events for “Where’s My Tribe” and working with the community to develop and implement workshops and special events geared to arts organizations and artists in Red Deer and area to promote ongoing networking to share knowledge and experience.

The Muskoka Chairs Fundraiser held at Artwalk Festival on June 18, 2011 was a joint fundraiser between RDAC and Artwalk. Unfortunately, rain fell by the bucket load and the Artwalk Committee were forced to close it down by 3:00 pm. They apologized for any inconvenience this caused potential bidders. All the Muskoka Chairs went to good homes. Perhaps one of them showed up in your neighbourhood!
