Open Call for Peterborough’s Biennial Multidisciplinary Arts Festival
EC3 is very excited to announce the return of Artsweek, which will be taking place June 10 to 18, 2022.
Artsweek is Peterborough’s “festival of the arts” – an extravaganza of music, literary and spoken word arts, puppetry and kid’s programming, media arts, visual arts, circus arts, dance, theatre and multidisciplinary performance of all kinds, unfolding in public spaces and established art venues all across the city.
Artsweek typically takes place every other year. Artsweek 2020 was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic (replaced by Artsweek SHIFT). Originally, Artsweek was rescheduled to take place in fall 2021; however, due to the ongoing uncertainties and challenges around COVID-19 health and safety regulations, the EC3 Board of Directors decided to postpone the event until June 2022, and re-open the Call for Proposals. (All applicants to the original 2021 Call have been contacted directly.)
In 2022, Artsweek makes its triumphant return!
