VALLEY ARTS AWARD, DEEP ROOTS MUSIC COOPERATIVE

We are thrilled to announce that Fred and Nancy Chipman are the recipients of our 2020 Valley Arts Award.  

The Valley Arts Award stands in recognition of a person (and sometimes, as this year … a team!)  who has made a significant long-term contribution to the arts in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley. Specific criteria to consider in nominating someone include that the person is or has been a local resident, and he or she has worked in development and/or promotion of Valley artists, arts events, or culture.
