September 23 to October 1, 2022

Artsweek is Peterborough’s biennial festival of the arts,
a 10-day, multi-disciplinary showcase of local creativity.
Artsweek brings new work to new audiences
in unexpected ways,

supports original creation by local artists,
and celebrates Peterborough as an innovative,

creative community with a vibrant arts scene.

Artsweek returns this year, with a COVID-19 responsive version of the popular festival that brings new works by local artists to audiences – in unexpected places.  This year’s Festival will combine commissions and co-productions with projects selected by a peer assessment committee from the applications to this Call. Artsweek takes over City and all events FREE!  It’s a multi-disciplinary extravaganza of music, visual arts, media arts, literary and spoken word arts, puppetry, theatre, performance, projections, poetry and circus arts. 

 Please check out the Artsweek 2022 page for up-to-date information on the Open Call for Proposals, Program Guidelines, and Application Form.
