Local intelligence gathering coming to Civic

The Nelson and Area Local Intelligence Gathering will be held on Saturday, November 2 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Nelson Civic Theatre.

This fall brings an extraordinary event to the Civic Theatre. The Nelson and Area Local Intelligence Gathering is a one-day event featuring local presenters on subjects ranging from collaborative art projects and sustainable local food production to innovations in business and integral parenting.

“We have a diverse and inspiring line-up of presenters,” said planning committee member Russell Precious.

“We want to celebrate the work of some amazing local people and catalyze new collaborations in the community. The more we are aware of the great things happening in our own backyard, the more we can work together to keep innovation and collaboration strong in our community.”

“The incredible community effort that helped to save the local theatre is the kind of creative collaboration we want to highlight at this event,” said Deb Kozak, city councillor and member of the event’s planning committee.

“Hosting the Gathering at the Civic Theatre really supports the theme of this event, and brings the event right into the downtown core.”

The Nelson and Area Local Intelligence Gathering will be held on Saturday, November 2 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Nelson Civic Theatre.

Tickets are $25 including lunch and can be purchased online at localintelligence.ca or at Otter Books. Some bursaries are available. Check the website for more information.
