2003 Canada Winter Games National Artists Program

Young artists, actors, dancers and musicians from across Canada converged at the 2003 Canada Winter Games in New Brunswick. They worked together to create "Celebrate the Magic", a gala performance showing case their wide-ranging talents.

The show was about how we Canadians face tough winters with grace, while keeping our country's cultural richness alive. It included some surprising science-fiction elements, original costumes and exceptional multimedia effects.

Participants in the National Artists' Program stayed in the Athletes' Village. They brought with them themed creative works and ideas they had prepared in advance. Rehearsals and production work for the gala began as soon as they arrived.

CBC ARTSPOTS producer Bob Mersereau spent time with these emerging artists and produced a documentary on how this exciting Gala Performance came together.


This cultural aspect of the 2003 Canada Winter Games is coordinated by the 2003 Canada Winter Games Host Society.

Three emerging artists from Manitoba, Katie Mordarski , Karen Musey and Christine Cooper who were participating in the program also wrote diaries on the web about their experiences.
