This year's theme was "future midnight"! Join arts council wood buffalo as they time-travel into near and distant futures, where the arts, science and technology converge. This year's awards showcase was a feast for the eyes, ears (and mouths!) as we exposed the wood buffalo region to the arts that have been, and the arts that have yet to be! Attendees were encouraged to dress to theme, and were given the full star treatment on the Buffys red carpet.
ABOUT THE BUFFYS
The Wood Buffalo Excellence in Arts Awards were created in 2016 to recognize and celebrate excellence in various arts disciplines throughout the Wood Buffalo region. The awards are distributed at an awards showcase. In 2020, to respect physical distancing, the Showcase was held in the form on an online broadcast, dubbed a "online steampunk cinematic experience." This event served to build awareness of the incredible contribution artists make to our community.
The recognition received by each nominee and award recipient serves to raise their profile, help build their portfolios, and allow them opportunities to compete and thrive as an artist within the community and beyond the borders of Wood Buffalo.
