The Works Summer Solstice Gala

Friday, June 24, 2016 from 6:30 pm to Midnight at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald 

Celebrate The Works Art & Design Festival and help us begin the summer of 2016.  

This year, the Gala will celebrate the launch of the 31st annual The Works Art & Design Festival, which has seen over 7.5 million visitors to 1,438 exhibits and 838 festival sites featuring over nearly 30,800 artworks. The Gala also celebrates the successes of The Places: Art & Design in Public Places. Since its inception in 1999, The Places has produced over 65 Public Art & Design Projects throughout downtown and other neighbourhoods – raising over 7.3 million dollars in cash and in-kind contributions.

The proceeds raised at the event will support Education Initiatives & Council Scholarships at The Works Society. To date, we have supported 223 internship placements and 206 scholarships for Edmonton and Canada’s next generation of cultural workers. 

The Gala features one of a kind live art and musical performances, a stunning silent auction, and a Food is Art Dinner Experience – all enjoyed by 400 of Edmonton’s ­finest creative and business community members.
