Local Intelligence Gathering goes this Saturday at the Civic

The Local Intelligence Gathering will feature local presenters on a wide range subjects

The public is invited to an extraordinary event to the Civic Theatre that is taking place this Saturday.

The Local Intelligence Gathering is a one-day event being held on November 2 that will feature local presenters on subjects ranging from collaborative art and sustainable food production to innovations in education and community policing.

“We have a diverse and inspiring line up of presenters,” says planning committee member Russell Precious. “We want to celebrate the work of some amazing local people and catalyse 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.”

More than 20 performers and innovators from the Nelson area will share their passion and expertise in brief presentations. A locally-sourced lunch menu will give those in attendance a chance to connect and share.

“The incredible community effort that helped to save the local theatre is the kind of creative collaboration we want to highlight at this event,” says Nelson city councillor Deb Kozak, a 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 Local Intelligence Gathering will be held on Saturday, November 2 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Nelson Civic Theatre. Tickets will go quickly at $25, which includes lunch. Tickets can be purchased online at localintelligence.ca or at Otter Books. Bursaries are available. Check the website for more information.
