Desired outcomes, challenges and lessons learned.
A project report presented by Cathy Stubington at the Inaugural Creative City Network
Conference, November 2002.

This project was a collaboration between Enderby and District Resource Centre Society and the artist /writer Cathy Stubington. The steering committee spearheaded a year and a half’s worth of community arts and fundraising activities to interest residents in participating in a community play. The play, Not the Way I Heard It, was presented ten times in the last two weeks of May 1999 on the banks of Shuswap River in Enderby. Local actors, musicians, visual artists, and seamstresses joined their talents with several theatre professionals from outside the community. The number of different people involved was estimated at 800.
