Alberta Arts Days at the Jubilee Auditorium

Friday, September 30, 2011 at 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Saturday, October 1, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.

Make the Jube part of your Arts Days festivities, and share the excitement about arts and culture that’s building right across the country. This year’s province-wide Arts Days celebration is set for September 30, October 1, and October 2 – three days of public arts events to delight, enchant and inspire the whole family! The Jube will hold special events open to the public on Friday and Saturday.

On Friday, September 30, bring your school to the Jube for our celebration of Arts in Education. From 9:30 to 11:00 a.m., students are invited to take part in a range of interactive arts activities. Explore the passion and drama of opera with Edmonton Opera; dance with the Alberta Ballet; and get a photographic perspective with artists from the Visual Arts Alberta Association. This program is intended for school children. Register in advance by calling (780) 638-3502.

Then on Saturday October 1, it’s our third annual Arty Party; a freewheeling multi-media extravaganza. It’s free, and you’re invited! We’re partnering up with The Works Art and Design Festival for an art-packed night of live music, food and beverages – and, of course, art of all kinds!

Once again this year, Jennifer Alabiso is overseeing the Jube’s Arts Days program in her role as Senior Manager for Community Engagement. She says, “It’s been terrific, to have this momentum. I’m glad that the Province has earmarked partnerships as the key to successful events – that’s exciting to me, seeing relationships build and grow.”

Alabiso is clearly motived by the opportunity to put Alberta art and artists into the spotlight at the Jube during Arts Days. “Open, Programmed and Free – and now – do it with community partners? That’s an initiative I can support and embrace!”
