On November 12th, 2012, the Kingston Arts Council and The Grand Theatre will be celebrating their shared 50th Anniversaries together at a special event at The Grand. 50 years ago, the City of Kingston bought the Grand when a group of concerned citizens lobbied on its behalf and formed the Kingston Arts Council.
We're looking for stories and personal histories of your involvement over the years with either organization or the impact it has had on your life or artistic practice. We'd love to hear from you - email grandtheatremedia [at] cityofkingston.ca if you have a story to share. We'll read every story, and share the best of them at our 50th Anniversary Celebration and throughout the year!
Start your stories with the phrase "If it wasn't for The Grand Theatre..." or "If it wasn't for the Kingston Arts Council..." for a chance to be included in this special moment in history. People with stories that are selected will be contacted before the event and invited to participate in the celebration with us!
