Armouries to welcome Open Streets festivalgoers

Students and faculty in the School of Creative Arts will invite the public into the Armouries building during the Open Streets Windsor festival on Sunday, Sept. 17, for an open house of “SoCA Open Sessions.”

The event will feature live music performances, live painting, outdoor activities addressing Visual Arts and the Built Environment, BioArt engagement, a film reel highlighting the work of past and present students and faculty, a collage activity for all ages, and the gallery with the student and faculty exhibition “Kickstart.”

The Armouries will be open through the festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Open Streets encourages community-building, active transportation, and physical activity. It will temporarily close an eight-kilometre route along Sandwich Street, Riverside Drive, University Avenue, Wyandotte Street, and Drouillard Road to motor vehicles in favour of people. A University hub is planned for Riverside Drive between Patricia and Sunset streets.
