City seeking Parks, Recreation and Culture program proposals

Deadline approaching for the 2020 Spring and Summer Activity Guide


The City of Nanaimo's Parks, Recreation and Culture Department is inviting community members to showcase their skills as an instructor in the upcoming Spring and Summer Activity Guide. Program proposals for a variety of areas, including dance, cooking, language, arts and crafts, music, outdoor recreation, and more are now being accepted. For the 2020 Spring and Summer Activity Guide, recreation staff are specifically calling for program proposals that encourage sustainability. For example, growing your own foods, canning workshops, "upcycling" programs or ideas that support active transportation. Programs may be designed in any category and for any age group; however, applicants are encouraged to review the current Activity Guide in an effort to avoid duplication of currently scheduled classes. Applicants can now complete the process, including attaching their resume and other relevant certifications, in an easy to use, one-step online form.

Link to Strategic Plan: Links to the Livability and Environmental Responsibility themes, by supporting recreation as an integral part of everyday life and taking a leadership role in adapting the way we live, work, recreate and move.
