As Harbourfront Centre continues to monitor the COVID-19 public health emergency, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 outdoor Summer Festival season, originally set to run from June 1 to September 7. While we work to support the Government of Ontario’s roadmap for reopening the province, we are exploring ways to safely bring you the stimulating arts programming you’ve come to expect during these challenging times.
A key component of Harbourfront Centre’s mandate is championing the creation of new artistic works while providing a platform for innovation, creation and excellence.
Some of these programmes include Visual Arts open call for professional artists’ submission for exhibitions in York Quay Gallery and the Craft & Design Studio’s Artists-in-Residence Program.
Many of the fantastic works are brought through Harbourfront Centre due to our invaluable relationships with community partners. Partnerships give community organizations the opportunity to showcase the artistic excellence found within their communities and collaborate with an international, professional and arts-based organization.
Harbourfront Centre’s Cultural Engagement (CE) Department produces over a dozen multi-disciplinary contemporary arts festivals throughout the summer season, as well as many off-summer events at various Harbourfront Centre venues.
Partnerships give organizations the opportunity to showcase the artistic excellence of their community to a large and diverse audience, and collaborate and benefit from the expertise of the Harbourfront Centre team.
