The Works Summer Solstice Gala is an unforgettable evening of entertainment and fine fare that launches the annual The Works Art & Design Festival each year. The Gala also celebrates the successes of The Places: Art & Design in Public Places Program. Since its inception in 1999, The Places has produced over 74 Public Art & Design Projects throughout downtown and other neighbourhoods – raising over 9 million dollars in cash and in-kind contributions.

This memorable summer evening was The Council’s 24th annual fundraising event, including a host cocktail reception, food is art experience, silent auction, and live art performances. 

The Gala supports Council scholarships and paid art internships at The Works, awarded to advance the development of Edmonton’s talented visual art and design students. With 280 scholarships and internships to date, these students in turn become key members of the cultural workforce, enriching our communities.

Please call 780.426.2122 ext. 222 for more information.  

We look forward to seeing you at The Works Summer Solstice Gala 2019!
