Thanks to all the members who joined us in Brockville for Ontario Presents’ 2015 Spring Retreat! Special thanks to Peter Dunn and his team at the Brockville Arts Centre for a wonderfully hosted event.
With the support from the Department of Canadian Heritage, Ontario Presents organized a delegation of five volunteer young-audience presenters from Northern Ontario to attend the Vancouver International Children’s Festival, May 28 – 30, 2015.
The festival took place on Granville Island, multiple different venues all over the island were used and it was like being completely immersed into the children’s festival being surrounded by kids and activities.
