150 Reasons to Be Canada

A unique cultural experience for Prescott and Russell.
150 Reasons is an ambitious project that unites the talents of 150 artists, artisans, and creators from our wonderful region and its surroundings. They will each present, on October 21, an original artwork celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation.

We are thrilled to present a project, as important as exciting for the arts, culture, and heritage of Eastern Ontario. 150 Reasons may be a celebration of our country, but it also represents the unity of a community that came together. When asked “150 reasons to be Canadian, what’s yours?”, they responded with their paintbrush, pen, voices, movements, and creativity.
