ON THE WALL Celebration of Artists and the Arts Update

Hi all Friends of Kingston Inner Harbour,

1) Final call for ON THE WALL, our amazing street art event. 
Celebration of Artists and the Arts, Sat. Aug 23 from 3-8 pm.
Douglas R. Fluhrer Park (Go as far north as you can on Wellington St. and you will be there!)

The artwork is truly beyond anything I could have imagined!
And the line-up for Saturday is really wonderful as well  Participatory activities for the whole family: poetry, dance, drumming, Open Mic, children’s games, slacklining, tai chi, etc as well as food and music.

Official start at 3 pm with Mayor Mark Gerretsen cutting a cake and Laurel Claus-Johnson with an Aboriginal tobacco ceremony followed by all sorts of family-friendly arts, sports and games for the rest of the afternoon.

Thanks to very much to everyone who donated to our Indiegogo Campaign: http://igg.me/at/onthewall We managed to raise the $6000 we wanted to pay the artists and cover expenses.  So very much appreciated!
