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 places,
supports original creation by local artists,
and celebrates Peterborough
as an innovative,
creative community with a vibrant arts scene.

It’s an extravaganza of music, visual arts, media arts, literary and spoken word arts,
puppetry, theatre, performance, projections, and circus arts.

It’s 40 events, day and night, and nearly 100 artists.
Don’t miss out!

Land Acknowledgement

We respectfully acknowledge that the land on which we work and gather is in the traditional territory of the Michi Saagiig Anishnaabe, home to the Williams Treaties First Nations, who have been the stewards and caretakers of these lands and waters for countless generations. We support them in this work, which they continue to this day.

We are grateful to be here, and pledge to listen and learn from traditional Indigenous knowledge and ways. EC3 is committed to doing all we can to further efforts at real Truth and Reconciliation, which includes providing support to the artistic work of Indigenous artists, examining the ways we do this, and providing a space and a platform for Indigenous voices to be heard and respected.
