Jim Barber offered to write the content while Paula Brooks offered to design. The two will develop a draft to be circulated through for approval from the Committee to meet the February 6 th deadline. Online Presence: Facebook/Twitter - Lyndsay Tee is to submit a report to Council seeking approval to create a Facebook page and Twitter account for the Municipal Arts and Culture Advisory Committee.

Page 5 of 25 3 Mission Statement: Creating the environment for limitless artistic expression enhancing our community through arts and culture. Celebrating Arts & Culture Vision Statement: The Greater Napanee Municipal Arts and Culture Advisory Committee is a comprehensive source of information, organization and inspiration for the local arts and cultural community. The committee s task is to promote arts and culture events within the community and to support and encourage the work of individual artists, artistic/cultural organizations, venues and arts/culture related programs, businesses and services. As a communications conduit, the committee can bring together groups and individuals to share information and resources, as well as to foster a spirit of collaboration, collective passion, accessibility and inclusivity. We are to create an environment that allows for unfettered creativity and expression, where all forms of artistry and cultural activity are welcome, regardless of age, cultural background, genre, media or level of experience. The committee is to be the point of contact between council and the arts community, creating a seamless, two-way interface to allow for constructive, co-operative and fruitful discussion and sharing of information. As part of an overall community and economic development strategy, the work that this committee does can help put the Town of Greater Napanee on the map as far as being a centre for arts, culture and heritage. This can help attract new visitors, new residents and new investment.

To help in doing so, they are seeking permission to create an online presence for the group that will be used as a communication tool. On-Line Presence Page 8 of 25 H- rr,, - Report T. Cultural C.mmfttee Since the Committee last heard of the prospect of Small Scale Punk/Ska shows coming to town, here s what has transpired. After the meeting on December gth the Town was again approach regarding approximately 4 to 8 of the above described shows being hosted within the Greater Napanee. Under the New User Group Policy that the Town has adopted, there is a Section that states User Groups that are deemed Youth or Senior are eligible to be approved to use a Town Facility at the reduced rate of: $2.50 (per person charged at the door) be returned to the Town after the Event (as it was explained to me by James Timlin via ). Under this agreement it was stipulated that this was to be a Private Event (ie. A Nathan Amey Event supported by the Town, rather than a Town Event ). At this Event (put on under my Record Label: Bare Bones/Do-It-Yourself Records) admission will be $6.00 & will feature 5-6 bands. $2.50 of the per person admission will be returned to the Town the next business day after the Event. The remaining $3.50 per person will go to compensating gas money for the bands, starting with paying the Out-of-Province Bands (or the bands furthest travelled). If the show goes exceedingly well, the bands from Kingston & Belleville areas will be next in line to get paid....followed by the local bands. *It should be noted however that bands are not expected to profit from these shows. Most likely, there will only be enough to pay Out-of-Province Bands a Gas Contribution. After getting here, eating & figuring out where they will be staying...these bands will not be expected to be benefitting on a monetary level. Myself, I will not be profiting from the door either. Because the hall provided by the Town (South Fred Hall) is so far away from any amenities, I plan on selling pop & water. The profits from that will go to trying to treat the band to Pizza & Ontario Poutine at World Famous LA Pizzeria the day after the show (Sat). *Every Quebecer has told us that Chey Ashton s has the best Poutine in Quebec. I always Counter them by telling them how La Pizzeria bakes theirs like a Casserole! That Saturday, after the Friday Show in Napanee, I have linked & extended this show to one in Kingston at The Mansion on Princess St but before we go to Kingston, I plan on showin our guests the best this Community has to offer! As well, the nearer travelled bands (& our Local Acts) will play Kingston that night so they will also be invited to join the party & tour in Napanee beforehand! *1 plan on photographing these tours with planned shots at places like La Pizzeria as well as Marie s Place. An invitation to the Town to have a Representative appear in some of these shots will be made when all the details have been hammered out....but to get back to the Logistics! Promoters from Ontario & Quebec were then contacted to verify that these proposed Small-Scale Punk/Ska Shows were being done Nathan Amey - Concert Update Page 9 of 25 in a fashion & manner consistent with the Industry Standard. *One of these promoters is the Official Booker for Montreal s Pouuzafest....an Annual Festival in its 5th Year that features over 250 bands in over 20 Downtown Montreal Venues! Members of the Bare Bones Records Family will head up the responsibility of Security & other Details. The next morning, the Hall will be Left as it was Found! As mentioned, this Napanee show will then go to Kingston. At each of these shows, I plan of trying to link them to different Towns & Cities. This will not only get Napanee s name out there amongst the Musical Communities of Ontario & Quebec, it will also give Napanee s up & coming Punk & Ska Acts a chance to take their songs outside of Napanee by establishing their own connections. I m already working with 2 reputable promoters in Ottawa, who are joining forces to bring one of my bands to Ottawa for a well-planned show. One of these Promoters has been putting on shows since 1989 & has music connecting all throughout Canada & the U.S the other has been comin up quick & is the 3rd Promoter to state that their 1st show was a Sofa King Addicted Show! In any event, I have another Quebec Band Waiting in the Wings to play Ottawa & Napanee in April. As well, Halloween & Christmas themed shows are planned! This will fulfill my end of the agreement with 4 of the possible 8 shows. It is suspected that the other 4 shows will most likely be used as dates of opportunities if bands are looking for a specific date when passing through the 401 Corridor. We opened for Ill Scarlett (of Sony Records....Avril s Label) in Belleville last December when they were looking to fill a gap between the Major Centres. Bands like that can be received once these shows are up & runnin! At each of these shows, as well as keeping track of numbers through the door, I m also planning on recording where each person is from (including the Non-Admission-Paying People like: The Bands, their Crew as well as any miscellaneous people like Out-Of- Town Promoters who often hitch a ride with their bands to check out the rest of the Scene ---In Sports Terms, they would be the Scouts ). By doing this, at the end of the year, I will be able to show the Cultural Committee, Town Council, Managers & Directors & all of Napanee exactly how many people Bare Bones Records & myself have brought to our Community....as well as where they hail from! If all goes well this year & if I can prove that Bare Bones is bringing Tourism to Napanee, we may want to examine a Town venue that won t divert these Tourists away from Napanee. At this 1st show, 2 bands will be travelling from Quebec... Strange & Disturbing (from Montreal I believe) & A Tree At Last (from Quebec City, if I m not mistaken). These bands will most likely only see Palace Rd when they pull off Napanee s East 401 Exit. The other Non-Local Band is The Pretty Vacants....they play both cities, so I need to double check, but they are from... either Kingston or Belleville. If it s Kingston, they will most likely take Bath Road & turn at Hydro (as will most people who would come from Nathan Amey - Concert Update Page 10 of 25 Kingston). They will then buy gas, food & coffee in Loyalist Township in either Bath or Amherstview. If they come from Belleville, they will pass through Centre St (if they don t come via Picton & the Ferry). Bands typically rush to get to the venue & unload. After that, they then usually check out the lay of the land. South Fred Hall is too far for a band to back-track for the sake of food & amenities. Their Band Leader will most likely tell em to Suck it Up Princess!. As it Stands, the people that have been brought here with Hard Work & Strong Organization, will step out into the Darkness of a Snowed-In Ball Complex on February 27th. Just some factors for consideration! In closing however, I wish to Thank: The Cultural Committee, Town Council & Managers & all the Individuals who approached me to show an interest....you know who you are! I will do my best to make sure our Town gets seen for all its good points by our new (& hopefully returning) visitors! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me!
