Izaak Smith is one of the people of Prince George featured in the national panel discussion about the arts that people can tune into for free.

Local artists will be featured during a national virtual panel discussion about Following Creative Paths: Re-centering Northern Artistic Life, a documentary looking at those who stayed in Prince George to pursue their artistic careers and others who chose to relocate to bigger city centres.

The documentary will also be screened during the June 17 event that starts at 10 a.m.

Featured as panelists for the discussion are local residents Elmer Gunderson, Clayton Gauthier, and Aidyl Jago and those who chose to move to bigger centres like Tristan Ghostkeeper who moved to Vancouver and Izaak Smith who moved to Toronto.

The Community Arts Council of Prince George & District and artsUNITE / UNITÈ des arts in Toronto partnered to present the event.

During the discussion, panelists will explore professional development, the metric of artist success and grassroots versus institutional community development to centre the arts and culture conversation towards more remote regions.

The discussion will provide insight into the challenges, differences and future development of the arts community in Prince George and other smaller communities.

The moderator for the event is Thea Fitz James from Toronto.
