They may be recognized by their peers and the community as a whole to have given distinguished service and/or for excellence in the arts and culture field. Recipients are honoured at a special awards ceremony held at the Port Theatre and their portraits are displayed in the Strongitharm Gallery.
The 2019 Emerging Cultural Leader Award will be presented to Mr. Nico Rhodes at a special ceremony on April 18 at the Port Theatre, Nanaimo BC.
