2018 ArtsEverywhere Festival

Welcome to the second annual ArtsEverywhere Festival, Guelph’s festival of ideas. Over four days, the festival offers lectures, conversations, music, artistic performances, literary readings, and workshops.

The ArtsEverywhere Festival takes place on the ancestral and treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation of the Aanishinaabek Peoples. Throughout history, this land and these waters have also been home to the Chonnonton Peoples (“People of the Deer”), and the Anishanaabe and Métis from the north. We offer respect as we strengthen our relationships with them. We express our gratitude for sharing these lands for our mutual benefit.
