We regret to announce that the salon event, A Conversation with the Honourable Minister Leela Aheer, scheduled for September 10th, 2019, has been cancelled. The Minister’s office has recently expressed to PACE that she is now unavailable to attend the event.

PACE apologizes that this event could not go forward as planned; we were truly looking forward to this discussion and opportunity to hear more about the current government’s plan and vision for the arts and culture sector.

PACE remains committed to offering educational opportunities such as this one to artists living and working in the Edmonton area, and we welcome your suggestions for future salon topics.
