Community Voices II

This event helps kick off our amazing Festival that animates downtown Courtenay every Spring.

Tickets by suggested donation online (with “beer” and “no beer” options, thanks to support from Gladstone Brewing). Net proceeds go to Elevate Arts Festival. Because at LIFT we think they’re doing an outstanding job of elevating the economy.

Community Voices II features Comox Valley talents – in the arts, technology, craftsmanship, leadership, and more. Thanks to The CV Collective and the crew at 6th Annual Elevate Arts Festival for making this shift happen!

— Wendy Nixon Stothert, Choral Valley (music)

These 7 talents will have 7 minutes and 7 slides to tell us about their experiments in living locally, thinking BIGger.

Afterwards, we’ll be hosting one of our #WeAreYQQ After Party events, with fun & games & prizes & music thanks to LIFT VIPs, the #WeAreYQQPartyCrew, and DJ Adil!

#WeAreYQQ is the tag and brand of creatives and entrepreneurs in the Comox Valley / YQQ region. We invite all entrepreneurs and creatives to join us. Our parties are places where people have fun, find kindred creative and entrepreneurial spirits, and win lots of prizes.
