Meet WRAPS Board of Directors & Volunteers
The Winding Rivers Arts and Performance Society (WRAPS) is a group of volunteers, musicians, artists and artisans who are dedicated to empowering and enhancing the wellness and spiritual health of the communities and peoples of the Thompson River region. The society is governed by a board of community-minded volunteers who have a passion for the arts and who help cast the vision for the society within the community.
According to Martina Duncan, WRAPS director, “we believe it is important to provide opportunities for people in small, rural and remote communities to have access to live music and performances and to be able to experience fine arts and cultural events.” Not only is the board made up of volunteers, but all of the events that WRAPS puts on are entirely staffed by volunteers from within the community, a big indicator that Ashcroft is committed to making the arts a central part of life in the community.
Martina points out that many of the volunteers who serve so faithfully within WRAPS are also actively volunteering in other organizations. This commitment to community life is proof positive that Ashcroft is a wonderful place to live. Plus, says Martina, “the lifestyle is fabulous, the people are friendly and the weather here is the best!”
Creative. Supportive. Empowering.
