Our friends in Regent Park have a big weekend coming up — Corktowners will definitely want to take note.
VIVACITY: With events on both Saturday & Sunday, Vivacity 6.0 is a free, two-day arts showcase presented by UforChange, an arts-based education program for youth living in Regent Park, St. James Town, and the GTA. The Vivacity weekend is a chance for UforChange participants to showcase their artwork and the skills they have developed while attending the six month program. UforChange participants come from all over the city- from Whitby to Scarborough, Jane & Finch and Brampton!
The line-up includes a film, fashion and theatre show on Saturday, July 6 at the Aki Studio in the Daniels Spectrum, from 7 to 9 p.m., with an encore performance on Sunday from 3 to 5 p.m. Vivacity will also be presenting Beats in the Park at the Regent Park Sunday in the Park Event (see below) along with an official gallery opening.
