Day in the Life Community Series
The 2020 Culture Days festival will have Ontarians celebrating arts and culture online, at home, and in-person. While COVID-19 may make visiting other places a challenge, you can still take part in the buzz with our Day in the Life community series. The series will focus on different communities throughout the province to showcase some of the exciting things happening during Culture Days from September 25 - October 25, 2020.
Do you think your community or group might be a good fit? Provide us with a few details about your upcoming celebrations to be considered. Apply here! Deadline is Monday, August 17th.
Over the years we have used artwork from various PRAC members as a background for ArtScene in the masthead. If you would like to showcase your design or photo let us know. The dimensions of ArtScene is 7"x2". You can create a rectangle design or choose a section of one of your pieces and we will place your image inside the word ArtScene. Or if you prefer to work with the outline we can send you a png. While we won't be printing ArtScene for a while, we still want print quality images (300 dpi, ppl or lpi).
Feel free to give to drop us a line if you have questions. We would love to see your work in the Masthead for an upcoming issue.
