Whistler Arts Council's Executive Director Doti Niedermayer has been tapped as one of three "Arts Champions" selected by the Assembly of B.C. Arts Councils.
The distinction is meant to honour individuals and organizations that make significant contributions to their communities through support of arts and culture programs, initiatives and collaborations.
Niedermayer has been working in the arts and cultural sector in British Columbia for more than 20 years, working tirelessly to attend and promote events to ensure their success and helping to make Whistler a cultural tourism destination.
According to the B.C. Arts and Culture Week website: "The partnerships she has created and fostered over the years with all three levels of government, businesses and other non-profit organizations, her personal and professional integrity, her belief in the value of the arts in the creative economy, are just some of the reasons why the Whistler Arts Council was invited to co-produce Whistler Live! the cultural programming offered during the Olympic and Paralympic Games."
