Carnegie Days 2018
September 27 to 30, 2018

From September 27 to 30, the MacLaren Art Centre and its cultural partners in Barrie present Carnegie Days. This annual four-day festival of art and language offers great events for visitors of all ages. Special exhibitions, performances, talks and tours, readings, film screenings and workshops take place at the Gallery and at other downtown Barrie venues. Many events are free or admission is nominal. This year’s festival theme is The Story of Place.

Carnegie Days draws on the origins of the MacLaren Art Centre’s building as a 1917 Carnegie public library with activities that explore the role language plays in contemporary art. It also celebrates the legacy of Scottish-born American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, who built over 2,500 public libraries in the English-speaking world.
