Stage & Story Market

Stage & Story Market

At the Kitchener Market on September 26-27, 2015. Presented in partnership with Word On the Street as part of IMPACT 15


September 26-27

MT Space launches IMPACT’s first ever Stage&Story Market, a free, outdoor, all-ages event in downtown Kitchener. Modeled after traditional outdoor farmers’ and flea markets, the Stage&Story Market will create a space where the vendors are artists and the goods that are shared and exchanged are stories brought forward by the community. Everyone will be invited to share stories and interact with artists from all disciplines.

Saturday September 26, 8 AM – 3 PM
Kitchener Market

On Saturday, shop for local produce and for art. Stage&Story Market will feature a variety of performances by international, national, local, and community artists. Interactive booths will also populate the Market, giving you an opportunity to connect and create with artists and arts organizations. Make puppets, play music, and watch the art happen. Shop the arts while you shop for groceries!

Sunday September 27, 1:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Art District Gallery (Next to the Kitchener Market)

Have you ever wanted to hire an artist? Presenters and the public can visit the Art District Gallery on Sunday between 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM and get to know local artists and artists of the festival. Interactive arts vendors will return from previous day to connect and share their talents with the local community and festival guests.

Stick around at 4:00 PM for the reading of two new original plays: Deserter by Daniel Thau-Eleff from Winnipeg at 4PM, and This Is Not a Conversation by Dima Alansari & Itai Erdal from Vancouver at 5:30PM. Both readings will be followed by a conversation with the playwrights.
