Kicking Horse Culture has a new General Manager, as Cheryl Hurd has come to Golden to work with the local group.

Since coming to Golden in October, by way of Vancouver, Hurd has been very impressed by what she has seen both with the group and the town itself.

“I think the work that Kicking Horse Culture (KHC) is doing is phenomenal. There is always something to do. I think the bookings that Bill Usher is creating are top notch.”

Hurd has been working in the arts in British Columbia for the last 20 years and asked around about KHC before agreeing to come to Golden.

“In my opinion it is one of the top art councils in the country,” she said.

She added that she has worked with a lot of arts councils and knows how hard it can be to do something of this magnitude in a small community.

“You have to get the people out, and here they are coming out,” she said.

Even though it was a big decision to leave Vancouver, Hurd explained she is amazed by how she has been accepted into the community.

“I have been welcomed with open arms and I am just having a great time…I can’t even tell I have left Vancouver. The job is terrific. It is very busy and there are a lot of things coming my way on a daily basis,” she said. “I know a lot of people already. You are meeting people constantly at events. It is wonderful. Thank you Golden for welcoming me.”

Hurd will be working with the books, accounting, human resources along with helping with the events held by the group.

“The gallery is quite phenomenal in its own right. It is a nice enterprise which is good for local artists. It is designed beautifully.”
