Days to Remember: Celebrating 150 years of Visual Arts in Mississauga
Start date: 16 January, 2017
End date: 1 January, 2018
VAM celebrates the sequiscentennial and shares the rich visual arts history in Mississauga through the experiences of its long-standing artist member groups.
Nature of the Project Reach
The project is to reach the regional region arts community of Mississauga. With artist members originating in neighborhoods across the city (Clarkson, Peel, Port Credit etc.) the project will resonate with artists from communities across the city.
This inclusive C150 project will bring awareness of the contribution of visual arts collectives to Mississauga's culture heritage and stimulate public conversation and participation. We will engage the community in challenges and virtues of establishing an artist group, how they start, and how they continue to exist. This project will bring the past and the future of Mississauga's vibrant culture and visual arts community together and offer appreciation to those who paved the way.
