A major focus of attention was Jeremy Addington’s photo display of people affected by DTUC’s closure, together with their families—the first time since 1984 the exhibit had been shown in full. The art show was also a big draw.
The Nelson Star gave us good coverage, with a column by DTUC alumni and panelist Donna Macdonald, incorporating several Reunion photos, and an online feature by attendee Bill Metcalfe. Check out the GALLERY for other photos of the event.
The organizing committee feels that the 2023 DTUC REUNION was such a hit, that in January 2024 we plan to canvass people to see if there’s an interest in getting together again in 2025, tentatively on Friday, May 16 and Saturday, May 17, 2025 (Victoria Day that year is May 19).
In order to make the 2025 DTUC REUNION a little different, the committee proposes to also involve former faculty, support staff and students of DTUC’s successor institution, the now-defunct KOOTENAY SCHOOL OF THE ARTS. (KSA originated with the DTUC Support Society after DTUC’s closure.)
For now, we are maintaining the DTUC REUNION website and the Facebook site. And you can always contact us at email@example.com or join us on the DTUC REUNION Facebook group.
