Artists at Work
What's an arts festival without artists? In 2017, we return to our roots, providing an opportunity for festival visitors to experience art-making up close as you watch artists create in real time. This is also a chance for the public to engage in informal conversations about artistic processes.

And best of all? YOU get to try your hand at it too! Check out the "Make It Take It" list below, and "make your own souvenirs"!

Everything takes place at Victoria Square Mall (2034 - 19 Ave), right across the street from the Didsbury Library and Top Note Music School, from 11 am - 5 pm on both Saturday, September 9th and Sunday, September 10th.

The Lions Shuttle Bus will be driving past on a regular basis, so make sure you pop in and visit with our "Artists at Work"!

Admission by Donation - Wheelchair/Stroller Accessible - Free Parking - Free Shuttle
