Application for Membership to the Celtic Colours Festival Society
The Celtic Colours International Festival is structured as a membership-based society, known as the Celtic Colours Festival Society, consisting of individuals dedicated to the objectives and mission of the Festival. From the Society is drawn a group of Directors who form a policy board, providing oversight of the Festival year-round.
A registered Nova Scotia membership association and Canadian charity, the Celtic Colours Festival Society is dedicated to advancing the public’s appreciation of the arts by producing the Celtic Colours International Festival each October on Cape Breton Island. The Society also aims to advance the education of the public by providing workshops, performances, and presentations about Celtic music, arts, heritage and culture, and the Gaelic language. More information about the Festival can be found here.
