Culture comes alive through interactive experiences as Aurora Public Library celebrates Culture Days 2017 on Saturday, September 30, from 2 – 4 pm.
Bringing some of the finest of Aurora’s artists together to lead workshops and perform in a crazy two-hour time span, APL invites you to explore, engage, create and have fun.
Develop the writer in you at “Obituary Fiction” with author and zine artist Marnie Maguire. Rifting on an imagined obituary as a writing prompt, bring a character back to life in this quirky workshop on character development. Advance registration required.
Discover new ways to make your photography come alive in “The Art of Seeing”, an intimate hands-on workshop facilitated by Ronen Grunberg of the APL Camera Club. Advance registration required.
Join Judy Sherman and Eva Folks “In the Artists’ Studio” for a quick sketch or stay for the full two-hour session. Bring your own supplies or use basic drawing materials supplied by the Library. Beginner or advanced – Just drop in!
Experience a dramatic excerpt from the play “Visiting Mr. Green” performed by Theatre Aurora. This will be the sole performance in our community, so definitely, not to be missed!
Celebrate the creativity within as the APL Writers’ Group and Friends take to the “Open Mic” with poetry, spoken word and music. Clap for your neighbours and brave the Open Mic experience.
Throughout the afternoon, Lorene Salt, artist in residence, will be “Stitching in Public” with fellow canvas artists. Watch the creative process, ask questions and be inspired.
Culture Days is a collaborative movement that welcomes your participation. Look for your Culture Days passport in the Auroran, visit any of the participating venues to have your passport stamped and be eligible to win great prizes.
