Anyone wanting to become more involved in the fine arts in the North Island will have a chance to do so next month.

The North Island Festival of Performing Arts (NIFPA) is holding its annual general meeting June 21.

NIFPA is a non-profit society dedicated to providing an annual festival for students of the Comox Valley and surrounding communities to perform before audiences and adjudicators.

NIFPA’s goal is to advance, promote and develop the performing arts in its varous forms and to encourage performing arts as an adjunct to community life.

The annual festival features adjudicated performances in strings, classical guitar, speech arts, fiddle, piano, vocal and — ballet, modern, stage and hip hop. Festival participants can be recommended by the adjudicators to compete in the annual Performing Arts BC Festival.

The upcoming NIFPA annual general meeting is an opportunity to become involved in the fine arts community of the North Island if people are interested in volunteering.

All individuals are welcome to attend the meeting and to join the organization if they are interested.

The annual general meeting will be held June 21 at 7 p.m. at the Old House Village Spa Conference Room at 1730 Riverside Lane in Courtenay.

Snacks and refreshments will be available.
