Arts & Culture

As if by magnet, artists are drawn to Smithers. Perhaps it's the natural beauty of the surrounding-expansive mountain vistas, roaring rivers and tranquil creeks and brooks. Or, is it the solitude that provokes such a wealth of artistic and cultural talent? Whatever the reason, the seasons are alive with displays of musical, dance and theatre performances.
