Get ready for The Culture Congress 2010, which will rage through various Toronto locales from March 24 through March 28. Harbourfront Centre, the Theatre Centre’s FREE FALL ’10, Harbourfront Centre’s World Stage 2009-10 and Calgary’s Theatre Junction Grand are joining forces to put on a variety of roundtables, lectures and discussions on the Canadian arts community, mentorship and performance. The events are all open to the public, and the best part is, they’re free!
This year’s focus is on how the arts community comes together: artist to artist, artist to presenter and artist to audience. In exploring this issue, some of the events you can look forward to include presentations from Irish delegates who will discuss the arts communities in their country, comparing and contrasting with Canada; discussions about creating artistically challenging and sustainable work and senior artists interviewing their very own mentees.
