Culture is alive and thriving in the City of Windsor and Mayor Eddie Francis is gearing up to hand out three new awards of merit to recognize the contributions and achievements of those who have helped strengthen our creative community.

The Windsor Mayor’s Arts Awards will be given to an individual artist, an arts organization, and a volunteer that all demonstrate a passion and dedication for the arts.

The awards program is one component of the Municipal Cultural Master Plan that was approved by City Council in 2010, and its aim is to act as a strong public signal about the importance of artists and volunteers to the cultural fabric of the community and the creative soul of the City.

Nominations are currently being accepted, with the awards open to individuals and organizations involved in all genres of the arts, including performance, visual, literary, media/new media, and design.

Nominations will be accepted until March 28th at 3 pm. Details on the nomination process can be found on the City of Windsor website.

The awards will be presented on May 8th.
