Say 'Hello, Goodbye' with GAC

By Patti Broughton

GAC is channeling The Beatles these days, saying ‘Hello’ to two new staff members, Fan-Ling Suen and Preetam Sengupta, who will be sharing the role of Manager of Programs & Operations, and ‘Goodbye’ to Katie Wilde. Katie heads west at the end of April for new art adventures in Alberta.

Sharing Guelph’s Stories at Doors Open Guelph

Guelph, ON – March 28, 2019 – Doors Open Guelph, Guelph’s annual celebration of its special places – historical, architectural, creative, and innovative – will be enhanced this year by Sharing Guelph’s Stories, an event-within-an-event that will increase the role the arts play in the event, and will be launched by Doors Open After Dark, presented by Guelph Museums. Visitors can experience dramatic storytelling at the Gow Bridge with Jay Wilson, guided public art and downtown gallery walks with Ahmri + Abby, and arts activations at Doors Open sites. Also new this year is a Doors Open Bike Tour, in collaboration with Guelph Coalition for Active Transportation, and a Rest Stop & Info Hub at 46 Cork St., hosted by PIN and The Guelph Community Foundation.

Doors Open Volunteer Info Sessions

Did you know it takes almost 200 volunteers to make Doors Open Guelph a reality? When you volunteer for this event, you make a lot of people’s day. Thousands, in fact.

Please join us at City Hall for a volunteer info session on Doors Open Guelph 2019!

There are two identical sessions to choose from: March 5 or 7, both at 5pm. This is an accessible location close to the Guelph Transit Terminal. If you are driving, please give yourself a little extra time to find street parking.

Doors Open Guelph 2019 takes place Saturday, April 27, from 10am to 4pm. We have many exciting announcements for this year, including 15 sites, art walks, performances, a night party, and more.

We’ll go over the different volunteer roles to choose from, and you’ll have a chance to sign up for a 3.5-hour shift at the site of your choice.

Want a sneak peek at this year’s sites?
