And a Small Update to the Eligibility Guidelines

Hello Everyone,

Last week we announced the Open Call for Artsweek SHIFT², and we have been overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response so far. Artists are reaching out with great feedback, excellent questions and exciting ideas, and we can’t wait to see what this project produces!

Thank you to everyone who came out to the two Artsweek SHIFT² Application Information Sessions, which we held last Thursday, February 4 over Zoom.

We have now uploaded recordings of both of those sessions to the Electric City Culture Council YouTube page. Here’s the 5:30pm session and the 7:30pm session. Note: both sessions covered roughly the same material, but with different audience questions.

You can also read through the PowerPoint presentation from the workshop.

Eligibility Guidelines Update

We have released a minor update to the Eligibility Guidelines for Artsweek SHIFT². The update clarifies that both Components 1 and 2 of Artsweek SHIFT² are open to residents of both the City and County of Peterborough.

Read the full guidelines and find the application forms on our website.
