#ygkChallenge: Support Local Arts

Kingston Symphony, Studio 22, Tett Centre, Grand Theatre, Theatre Kingston, cultureThe #ygkChallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.

This week’s #ygkChallenge encourages you to:

Take in some local culture. Looking at Kingstonist’s Events Calendar, it’s hard to ignore all of the arts and culture events that are taking place over the next few weeks.  Two exhibits of local artists are underway that feature the works of Kingston women.  Works from over 35 members of the Organization of Kingston Women Artists are on display at The Tett from noon-5pm Monday to Saturday.  Remember that nude painting of Stephen Harper from a few years back? The artist, Margaret Sutherland, has a new exhibit at Studio 22 titled Roller Derby, Politics & Other Blood Sports.  Admission is free at both galleries.  In the theatre world, Theatre Kingston will open The Mountaintop tomorrow evening, running until November 15th at Domino Theatre.  On Halloween, The Kingston Symphony will take the stage at The Grand Theatre for their first ever Symphonic Spooktacular. Find out how you can win tickets here. Next week also marks the 14th annual Tone Deaf Festival of Adventurous Sound Performance, taking place at various venues. So this week, we challenge you to get out there and support Kingston’s local arts scene.  Music, art, drama…whatever your preference, there’s definitely something for everyone. Check out our calendar for more ideas.

Join us in completing this week’s #ygkchallenge by liking it on Facebook and/or re-Tweeting it on Twitter. By liking and sharing, you’re not only committing to doing something great, but you’re also helping us spread the word and hopefully encouraging others to participate.
