ST. CATHARINES – Lights, camera… nominate. The City is now accepting nominations for the St. Catharines Arts Awards, celebrating excellence in theatre, dance, visual arts, media, literature and music.
Awards will be handed out June 8 at a ceremony at the St. Catharines Museum.
Nominations will be accepted until April 15, with nominees to be announced in May.
“The talent and passion that exists in the city is fantastic,” says Rebecca Cann, cultural planning supervisor.
“I don’t think residents are aware of just how vibrant our arts community is and the amazing filmmakers, singers, dancers and storytellers that live in our backyard.”
Now in its eighth year, the St. Catharines Arts Awards celebrate not only local artists, but also the individuals and organizations who have worked to further the arts and creative sector in St. Catharines.
Six awards will be handed out on June 8: the Established Artist Award, the Emerging Artist Award, the Making a Difference Award, the Arts in Education Award, the Patron of the Arts Award and the Arts Volunteer Award.
Winners will receive $300 and a certificate of civic appreciation.
Nominees will receive two complimentary tickets to the awards ceremony. Additional tickets can be purchased for only $10.
