“This last year provided us a chance to look at our organizational structure as well as the current opportunities and challenges for the arts here in Langley.” Says Alison Brotherton, the Langley Arts Council’s Executive Director. Alison goes on saying, “Langley’s Community within Communities structure, allows for an intimacy difficult to duplicate, but at the same provides a challenge for shared knowledge between groups. At the end of the day we needed a tool that would support each arts and cultural group, maintaining their distinct identity, while providing a greater opportunity for communication.” With their new Events Calendar and Arts Directory, artists, art lovers, and arts and culture groups can log in, add themselves to the Arts Directory, and add their own events.

The Langley Arts Council stresses that their new website goes beyond logistics to philosophy. The site focuses on openness and accessibility, allowing the general public to write their own reviews of events they’ve been to, upload photos of arts and cultural events around town, and comment to what others have written. This site is designed as a tool for artists to promote themselves and for artists and the community at large to be the ones to set the direction of arts and culture in Langley.

Claire Goodfellow, Trinity Western University’s Fine Arts coordinator, notes that, “The website opens up another way for the community to communicate with each other and to find out what is going on in the Langley arts community. It may be another useful avenue for attracting younger artists to become more involved.”

Seeing themselves as a support and conduit for the arts, the Langley Arts Council is using this new tool to provide additional support for collaboration between arts groups and to help increase the visibility of arts and culture in Langley.

While most sites are closely copywrited, Alison looks to new copyleft trends in the industry. “As far as the Arts Views section of our site goes”, says Alison, “go ahead and publish our content. It’s there so our artists can be promoted. All we ask is that we are credited as the source. Likewise, Every site user who submits information will be credited for their content. It’s all about free access, distribution of knowledge and the importance of recognizing the work people have done.”

When asked whether Langley is ready to establish an online community, Brandon Gabriel, the Langley Arts Council’s Vice-President, says, “I think the new format on our website addresses one of a few issues, in particular, the need to feel like a community. Although it does not replace actual interaction, that is not the purpose. However it enables members and the like to post their own thoughts and messages to the broad spectrum of the arts community in Langley. This is something that is constantly being brought up, and this is one way to address those needs.”
