“The Peterborough Arts Awards, organized by the Electric City Culture Council (EC3) and presented at the Mayor’s Luncheon for the Arts, is an annual recognition program that celebrates high artistic achievement and recognizes extraordinary contributions in and to the arts. It has been my great pleasure to champion this initiative to honour Peterborough’s outstanding artists and arts supporters.”
Bill Lockington, LLF Lawyers

“Peterborough has one of the most vibrant arts communities anywhere in the province. Trent President Leo Groarke has suggested that 'Peterborough really punches above its weight in the arts when compared to much larger cities.' These awards recognize that work: the outstanding achievements of our artists, arts organizations and arts supporters. This is the first time we have had the opportunity to come together and applaud the extraordinary talent and hard work of the local arts community and all that it contributes to our lives in this city.”
Bill Kimball
President, Electric City Culture Council (EC3)
Artistic Producer, Public Energy

"Arts and culture connect each of us to humanity and to the community we live in. Our arts community helps Peterborough thrive allowing us all to develop a fresh perspective and express ourselves, while challenging us to expand our thoughts and world view. The vibrant arts scene in Peterborough is one of many reasons I am proud to be part of this community. The Peterborough Arts Awards are an opportunity for us to celebrate the artists that bring life into our galleries, performance venues and public spaces. As a City, it is important for us to recognize all of the ways that the arts contribute to the social, cultural and economic well-being of our community." Mayor Diane Therrien, Honourary Patron: Mayor’s Luncheon for the Arts
