The Thompson Local News


Jasyn Lucas has been nominated for a Manitoba Tourism award.

 

The local artist, who opened The Gift of Art (which serves an art gallery, studio and tattoo parlour) three years ago with his partner Nikki Brightnose, is nominated for the Indigenous Tourism Award.

 

The nomination came from Community Futures North Central Development (CFNCD), who helped him get his business off the ground.

 

A spokesperson for CFNCD said that they wanted to nominate Lucas as he is a great ambassador for Northern Manitoba, and sets an example for youth and the business community that it is possible to make a living doing what you’re passionate about.

 

They added that the opening of the business enhanced both the art community and retail landscape here in Thompson.

 

The Indigenous Tourism Award is for those in Manitoba who are committed to sharing an authentic and realistic cultural activity and contribute to the promotion and advancement of Indigenous culture locally.
