IT’S A WRAP!
Artsweek 2016 exceeded all of our expectations. More than 30 projects, over 100 artists in 40 locations around the City. Audiences were bigger than ever and stayed the course – rain or shine. More than 80 sponsors and partners joined the fun and made the Festival possible. It was 10 glorious days of dance, music, poetry, sound, film, painting, performance, sculpture and circus arts. Windows, lampposts, bridges, gardens and parks, office buildings, stores, markets, malls – even parking lots – were alive with creativity, as Peterborough’s artists kicked up their heels and brought us a truly magnificent event. EC3 would like to thank each and every one of them, all of our Funders, Partners and Sponsors and the entire extraordinary Artsweek 2016 Team for doing such a wonderful job. Watch the EC3 and Artsweek web sites and FB pages in the coming weeks for video and photos. Artcity, you are the best!
