For the last year, Kootenay Co-op Radio has been engaged in a project titled Amplifying The Voices of Our Community (AVOC). This project was funded by the Community Radio Fund of Canada Radiometres grant program and supported five station volunteers in producing a series of 22 documentaries exploring the efforts of almost 50 local nonprofit groups working for the betterment of communities in the West Kootenay. 

We are hosting two parties to celebrate the end of this project and we hope you will join in. The Nelson launch is on Thursday, May 3 at Touchstones Museum and Gallery from 5-7pm, and the Kaslo launch is Tuesday, May 8th at the Langham Theatre from 5-7pm. Come out to hear samples of these documentaries and have conversations with the documentary creators and groups involved. These events are both free and all are welcome, so please feel free to bring your friends and family.
