A ‘Pocket Festival’ of Arts Events to Take You Sailing Through the Summer
It seems risky to get too optimistic these days, but as the sun shines, vaccination rates rise each day, and Ontario prepares its “reopening,” it’s starting to feel like we may just get through this thing. And today, we have one more thing for you to get excited about this summer: the Artsweek SHIFT² schedule of events is here!
Artsweek SHIFT² is an EC3 special COVID-19 pandemic project, offering a multidisciplinary ‘pocket festival’ of nine innovative and exciting arts projects that have been specifically designed to meet the challenges of presenting work during a pandemic. It takes place across the city and online, between now and July 31. Don’t miss circus extravaganzas on Armour Hill, spoken word on Instagram, theatrical monologues on Zoom, collaborative audio works on Trent Radio (92.7FM), a multimedia puppet show presented live to one audience member at a time, and more.
All Artsweek SHIFT² events are free!
We are so grateful to the nine arts organizations and groups that have worked tirelessly over the past few months, through the challenges of lockdowns and ever-changing reopening plans, to craft events these unique events. In person and online, we can’t wait to show you what these artists have been creating!
