Artsweek Peterborough in 2015 – APPLY NOW – Deadline June 5, 2015

September 18th – 27th

Artsweek is the City of Peterborough’s annual festival of the arts, a weeklong multi-disciplinary showcase of creativity that began as part of the City’s Centennial Celebrations in 2005. Since then the annual event has continued to bring new work to new audiences, support original creation by local artists, and celebrate Peterborough as a creative community.

Beginning in 2015, Artsweek will be produced by the Electric City Culture Council (EC3), with the goal of expanding and revitalizing the event by providing a structure for projects and focusing on its mission to raise awareness of the quality and quantity of activity in Peterborough’s arts and culture sector and recognize its power as a positive economic and social force for the City.
