Vignettes sought to recreate Cowichan’s past for Duncan anniversary

Cowichan has more than its share of heritage lovers and literary types.

Anyone able to combine both qualities should get in touch with Duncan’s Downtown Business Area Association immediately.

The DBIAS is partnering with the Cowichan Valley Arts Council aimed at creating a special legacy for next year’s Duncan Centennial.

According to a DBIAS press release, Duncan Vignettes is a competition to produce a set of short plays based on local history, which will be performed at next summer’s Duncan Summer Festival.

Next fall, master copies will be presented to all Cowichan school libraries for any future educational use they wish.

“(We) are looking for up to six different writers (or collaborative writing groups), who are interested in researching and then drafting, simple plot lines about an historically interesting incident from the history of Duncan,” DBIAS spokeswoman Agnes Caravati said. “The pieces need to be based in fact and need to reflect the ethnic demographic of the time.”

For information call 250-715-1700.
