Northlands is kicking off Alberta’s Culture Days with a 2-day event focused on highlighting arts and culture at the Urban Farm.
Edmonton, AB: We’re excited to showcase our Arts At The Farm, presented by EPCOR, event Saturday Sept. 5 and Sunday Sept. 6 at the Northlands Urban Farm (11312 79 Street NW). Combining urban agriculture with arts and cultural workshops and performances, the first-ever Northlands Arts At The Farm event, presented by EPCOR, will allow Edmontonians to enjoy a safe summer experience at a beautiful farm location in the city.
Arts At The Farm, presented by EPCOR, will feature performances by Sticks and Stones Percussion, Moza Africa, Lodestar Theatre, and more! As well, we’ll be joined by the Urban Sketchers group, artist Richard Dixon for Plein Air painting on site and transforming our small red barn into an art gallery for artist Jill Thomson. Workshops include willow weaving with Maryann Borch, a dream catcher workshop with Nadine Chalifoux, and the art of auctioneering with Ed Pietsch. Those are just a few of the scheduled events, please see times and the full schedule here: northlands.com/arts-at-the-farm
