In 2019, Artspace, Peterborough’s artist-run centre, celebrates its 45th anniversary. To mark this significant milestone, the centre will gather at the Market Hall, a site of historic significance - both in the centre’s history and the city’s cultural landscape - to celebrate. The night will feature a panel discussion with individuals from the centre’s past and present who have made significant contributions to the vitality of the centre. The panel includes:

Lori Beavis
Andrea Fatona
Bill Kimball
Fynn Leitch
Jeffrey Macklin

A publication featuring a transcript of the night's discussion will be produced by the centre and available for purchase shortly after the evening's events.

The night will end with music from bands and individuals with close ties to the centre’s long connection to Peterborough’s vibrant music scene, including:

The Ceedees
Susan Newman and Rob Fortin
Deejays Billy the K and Johnny Q

We hope you will join us as we explore our past and our future.
