Simcoe County's biannual culture conference took place on Wednesday May 24th and Thursday May 25th, 2017.
The City of Barrie in partnership with the County of Simcoe presented a day and a half of workshops, roundtables, panel discussions, and presentations to emphasize and enhance the role that culture plays in engaging communities. This opportunity to learn how the arts and cultural development can be used to enhance and grow economies in municipalities of all sizes was attended by cultural workers from across Ontario.
The conference was hosted at Sainte-Marie among the Hurons at 16164, Highway 12 East, Midland, Ontario L4R 4K8 and the Midland Cultural Centre at 333 King St, Midland, ON L4R 4K4.
Everyone has a Role to Play: Learn some of the tricks and techniques of live theatre from Death by Design Director and Huronia Players member Christine Killing. She will pick from a menu of acting, lighting, sound, and construction to let you know how it all works. Not only can you learn about theatre, but you can try your hand at part of the process
Storytelling through Song: Deeply rooted in the local communities of Midland and Penetanguishene, Nonnie and John bring the sights and sounds of Georgian Bay to life through expert technical instruction and emotive choice of lyrics. Through this workshop you will learn how to reframe the stories of an area into a new artistic medium that may reach new audiences and give context to a visitor’s experience in a region
