Get creative, meet local artists and learn about arts and culture at Brampton Culture Days, Sept. 28-30.
The city, Brampton Library, PAMA and the creative community will host a series of free public events, performances and workshops to celebrate the city’s vibrant and diverse cultural community. Music, dance, poetry, visual art and cultural demonstrations will be held at locations across the city. Residents are encouraged to connect with local artists and participate in hands-on activities for the whole family.
As part of Culture Days this year, Brampton will unveil a new public art installation, commissioned last year in honour of the 150th anniversary of Alderlea. Artist Tim desClouds has created a sculpture in the form of a metal bench, entitled For the Love of a House, which will be located on the grounds of the historic mansion. The artist will be on hand for the official unveiling on Sept. 29 at 11 a.m.
“Culture Days is a great opportunity to publicly showcase the enormous talent and creativity that thrive in Brampton,” said Mayor Linda Jeffrey. “I encourage everyone to participate in these fun, free activities, learn more about our local artists, writers and musicians, and explore your own creative side.”
