In 2021, Myths and Mirrors celebrated 25 years of building community through art but with the ongoing pandemic, it wasn’t able to celebrate this important milestone the way they would’ve liked… until now! 

You’re invited to join Myths and Mirrors at Place des Arts for an evening of food, music, art, and FUN in celebration of 25+1 years of Myths and Mirrors. The event runs at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 11 at Place des Arts. 

Featuring performances by local musicians, a karaoke party, fun door prizes, and more, this is one celebration you don’t want to miss. 

The event kicks off at 5:30 p.m. with dinner and performances by folk musician Cassidy Houston and Atikameksheng Anishinawbek singer-songwriter, Lisa Marie Naponse. 

At 7:30 p.m., the party gets started with music by local favourite Max Moon followed by karaoke and “self-care punk” band Like a Girl. 

“In 2021, we celebrated our 25th anniversary, but with the ongoing uncertainty caused by the pandemic, we weren’t able to celebrate this important milestone the way we would’ve liked,” said artistic director Cora-Rae Silk, in a press release.

“Myths and Mirrors has meant so much to so many people over the years so we’re just really excited to finally be able to bring folks together to not just honour the past 26 years, but to also look towards the future of the organization. Myths and Mirrors is one of the longest-running community arts organizations in the country and that’s truly something to celebrate.” 

Since 1996, Myths and Mirrors Community Arts has provided unique opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to experience and take part in the arts outside of mainstream settings. 

Their goals have been to create innovative art; to engender a sense of community identity; and most importantly, to provide a forum for marginalized individuals to express themselves. 

By providing the tools, resources, and support, Myths and Mirrors seeks to create meaningful art with community and foster exchanges that deepen understanding and solidarity with one another. 

Purchase tickets online here or in-person at Myths and Mirrors Community Arts (139 Durham St., Upstairs) on Wednesdays (12-4) and Thursdays (10-2).
