David Botten Renaissance Award 2021

The Botten Family, in conjunction with the Gabriola Arts Council, has created an award in David’s name from the generous donations received in the Spring. The David Botten Renaissance Award. The award honours a Gabriola artist who embodies the same passion for the arts that David did and shares them with community and the world.

David’s life long love of the arts was known to all that ever met him.  Whether he was singing, playing, drawing, painting, acting or designing, creativity brought him joy.  He believed that the arts in any dimension is a powerful way to explore and comprehend our deepest emotions.

He had a special place in his heart for helping others to explore their own creativity in any medium.  He encouraged with passion.

Cultivate 2021….is almost here!

We’ve let the Cultivate website do all the heavy lifting in talking about the festival, but it is 9 days away and time for us to chime in.

Cultivate 2021 takes place July 1-4th on the beautiful grounds of the Gabriola Commons. The festival is really more like a series of shows and geared towards locals, as we are being very careful about opening things up on the island. Seating is limited, the festival grounds do not have beer gardens or food vendors (we highly recommend you pack a picnic with your favourite foods and beverages), but you can see some amazing local art!

On July 1st Jake Galbraith will lead us in a free sing along of Great Canadian Songs. The line up for the festival is two days of theatre and two days of music. Some shows are sold out, but there are still tickets left, so check out cultivate.artsgabriola.ca to see who is playing and buy your tickets.

Perfect timing to welcome some “normal” back into our lives. Together we Cultivate the arts!
