Announcing the 2023 Mayor’ Arts Awards

October 18, 2023

Join the City of Kingston for the seventh annual Mayor's Arts Awards ceremony and reception, hosted by Mayor Bryan Paterson and the City’s Arts & Culture Services department. Mark your calendars for Monday, Nov. 6 at 7 p.m., as we gather at Memorial Hall in City Hall to honour the outstanding contributions of five remarkable award recipients as part of the 2023 program. 

The Mayor's Arts Awards highlight and appreciate the amazing talent and dedication within Kingston's arts community. By elevating the arts on the City stage, these awards play a pivotal role in enriching cultural vitality and civic identity in Kingston. 

The City, through the Arts & Culture Services department, administers this program and works with the Kingston Arts Council to promote the work of the award recipients through the creation of profile videos. Nominations for these awards are selected by a Nominations Working Group, appointed through the City’s Arts Advisory Committee and approved by Council. The Working Group is made up of members of the community who are respected and knowledgeable in arts and culture in Kingston, and represent a range of interests, experience and perspectives. 

This free event is open to all. Enjoy refreshments and a cash bar. ASL translation services will be provided.  

We hope to see you at this special celebration of Kingston's vibrant arts community!
