In partnership with the Barrie Film Festival, Simcoe Contemporary Dancers and the Barrie Public Library
Presented for Culture Days

Carnegie Days draws on the origins of the MacLaren Art Centre’s building as a 1917 Carnegie public library in Barrie and celebrates the legacy of Scottish-born American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, who built over 2,500 public libraries in the English speaking world. This annual arts festival offers great events for visitors of all ages that explore the role language plays in contemporary art. Special exhibitions, public art projects, performances, readings, artists’ talks, film and video screenings, guided tours and hands-on workshops for families and youth take place at the MacLaren and across the city of Barrie. Carnegie Days coincides with Culture Days, which highlights free, cultural attractions in downtown Barrie. This year’s festival theme is Translation: translation of experience into expression as it shapes our sense of self.
