Nominations now open for Arts & Culture Awards
The Town of Orangeville has opened nominations for the annual Arts and Culture Awards. The awards recognize contributions made to arts and culture in the Orangeville area by businesses, organizations and individuals. Arts and culture can include visual, music, dance, film, theatre, or written mediums, but also embraces culinary arts, parades, festivals and community events, design, and much more.
Eight award categories have been established and are open to residents of the County of Dufferin. Award criteria and a simple online nomination form are available at www.orangeville.ca. Nomination forms are also available at the Municipal Office (87 Broadway, Orangeville). The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, August 28 at 4 p.m. Nominees will also have an opportunity to provide judges with additional information once the Town has received the nominations.
The awards will be presented on Thursday, September 26 during an evening reception, kicking off Culture Days in Orangeville. Culture Days is an annual celebration that was created in response to the growing recognition that a vibrant arts and cultural sector contributes directly to a healthy and stable society. From September 27 to 29, free activities and performances will be hosted by artists, cultural organizations, and municipalities in communities across Canada.
Help our community recognize and celebrate arts and culture by completing your nomination today. For more information regarding nominations for the Town’s Arts & Culture Awards, visit the Town’s website or contact Katrina Lemire at [email protected] or 519-941-0440 Ext. 2258.
