Long Term

Set up the Flin Flon Arts Council Office on Main Street to make presence known/steady hours/ which would also include artisan and craft sales and promotion.


"The arts reflect profoundly the most democratic credo, the belief in an individual vision or voice . . . The arts' belief in potential gives each of us -- both audience and creator -- pride in our society's ability to nurture individuals."               

                                               - Wendy Wasserstein, playwright

Executive Director
         Alla Bondareva

I was born in Moldova and raised in Moscow to a musical and artistic family.   I hold degrees in Journalism and Pharmacology.  I studied classical piano for ten years and am a certified instructor in Neurographica (ask me about it!)

My (Canadian) husband and I came to Flin Flon in 2022 and we fell in love with the vibrant arts and culture community here and have decided to make Flin Flon our home.

I am excited to be the new Executive Director of the Arts Council and look forward to continuing the work and legacy created by Crystal Kolt
