The People Behind Quesnel Live Arts

QLA Members with the Presenter of the Year Award presented to Colleen Brines at the 2023 Pacific Contact Conference.

Who are We?

We are a group of volunteers who love live arts performances, live music, dance and quality entertainment in Quesnel. You can see what we are up to on Facebook, too.

What we do.

Even though we have our favourite types of music and performers, we seek out a wide variety of high quality, yet affordable live entertainment for the community of Quesnel.

Why we do what we do.

We strongly believe that young people with an interest in the arts should be able to attend Quesnel Live Arts performances. We regularly give them special rates as an encouragement to attend specific shows.
