Spotlight Etobicoke

Arts Etobicoke went live on Facebook on Wednesday, May 13 2020 for the first-ever SPOTLIGHT ETOBICOKE! This event featured local Etobicoke performing artists showcasing their incredible talents. The performers have a mix of styles and experience ranging from standout emerging artists to seasoned professionals. Check out the recording of this dynamic showcase and maybe discover your new favourite local artist, all from the comfort of your own home.

Spotlight Etobicoke is coming back August 19! Check out our Summer Spotlight Etobicoke page to find out more and apply today.

Crafting in Quarantine with Marjan Verstappen

 In this video series, Marjan will lead you through a fun and easy craft activity using cheap everyday items that you can find in your own home. Each week you will create a different art project, learn new skills, and explore various crafting techniques that you can do from home. This series is an adaptation of our weekly seniors’ art classes at Cloverdale Mall and allows our seniors to still explore their creativity and create from the safety of their own homes.

Crafting in Quarantine is supported by The Telus Friendly Future Foundation.
