Emily Carr / Arts Activity Centre

As Canada celebrates 150 years of confederation, the Coldwater Steampunk Festival salutes Emily Carr for being an artistic pioneer,

Community Art Project at the Music Barn, behind the Mill.

Meet writers D.L. Narrol and Tracy L. Ward, plus illustrator, Frances Tyrell at the Canadiana Heritage Museum.
