Founded in 2005 Artsweek is a non-profit, volunteer-run, week long celebration of arts and culture that takes place the second week of September every year in Peterborough Ontario. The goal of Artsweek is to program high quality, highly visible, and engaging projects that bring the arts front and center for the broadest possible audience.

Artsweek provides cultural producers with a professional opportunity to showcase with a diverse range of contemporary artists and acts as a launch pad for new projects. Applicants and participants are encouraged to view grants as seed money for development of their ideas into a sustainable long term project.

Artsweeks Opening Reception: Friday September 5th from 4 to 7pm at Market Hall
Join the Artsweek Presenters for a meet and greet with live music, refreshments, and performance.

Following the Artsweek opening reception:

The Electric City Culture Council in partnership with the Artsweek Steering Committee will host a Cultural Mixer - Artsweek РThe Next 10 years
