Nominations sought for 2012 Playhouse Honours
The Fredericton Playhouse is asking the public for nominations for The Playhouse Honours 2012. Since 2008, The Fredericton Playhouse board of directors has awarded The Playhouse Honours annually. The recognition honours individuals’ involvement in the performing arts in Fredericton, fostering a deeper appreciation of the value that people can make to community life through their work in music, theatre, dance, spoken word, and multidisciplinary performing arts. A permanent display in the west gallery of the Playhouse recognizes the honourees.
“The arts contribute to our lives in ways that we may not even readily understand – they give us new perspectives, enhance our relationships, and help us to connect with our creativity,” says Kim Hill, president of The Fredericton Playhouse board of directors. “The Playhouse Honours is a way for our community to celebrate and say thank you to those who have made a significant contribution to Fredericton through their involvement in the performing arts.”
Nominations can be made by any person or organization. Underscoring the personal investment that they have made in the community, recipients must be individuals, not companies or organizations. Recipients may be a professional or amateur artist, administrator, volunteer, educator, philanthropist, advocate, organizer, etc. A selection committee (jury) comprised of members of the local arts community will review the submissions and recommend an honouree to the Fredericton Playhouse board of directors.
The deadline for nominations is Friday, February 24, 2012. Past recipients include Ilkay Silk (2008), Brent Staeben (2009), Philip Sexsmith (2010), and Walter Learning (2011).
