Culture Days in Barrie is getting a makeover, extending from its usual annual weekend to a four-week schedule events, and the City is seeking local businesses and artists to get involved.
Kicking off Sept. 25 and running until Oct. 25, Culture Days invites everyone in the city to participate in and show appreciation for arts and culture in their own communities and nationwide.
As part of the event programming, the City is welcoming applications for a program called Artists in Biz. This program pairs artists with local businesses to feature artists’ works. Businesses who showcase artists work will be listed throughout Culture Days programming, providing an opportunity for drawing in new visitors to their business.
Artists will have an opportunity to share their work with new audiences and showcase to the community the level of skill and talent that exists in Barrie.
Participants for Artists in Biz will be chosen on a first-come, first-serve basis provided artist offerings align with the theme of the event and are of a quality and appropriateness that meets the satisfaction of the City. It is the responsibility of artists and businesses participating to work safely within the space provided. In light of COVID-19, artists and businesses must follow social distancing and other protocols as outlined by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.
Artists and businesses are invited to apply by Sept. er 21 to be considered. For more information,
