Culture Days 2012: Share Your Memories of the Mississauga Civic Centre

Jun 27, 2012

What is your favourite memory involving Mississauga Civic Centre or Mississauga Celebration Square? Was it a wedding? Was it a Canada Day celebration? Was it a festival or event? Did it take place 25 years ago or recently?

The City of Mississauga's Culture Division invites you to submit your favourite photo taken in and around the Mississauga Civic Centre to celebrate the building's 25th anniversary.

Each participant will receive a photo credit and photos will be screened on Mississauga Celebration Square, at the Civic Centre and online in an exhibition. The exhibition will officially launch on September 28, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. as part of the kick-off celebrations for the Culture Days weekend. The deadline for submissions is July 16, 2012.

"The photographs submitted by both amateur and professional photographers, along with the City's official archival images, will guide the exhibit through 25 years of vastly different and unique experiences. Gathered together, these photos will evoke feelings of pleasure, surprise and warm memories," said Susan Burt, director Culture Division.

Culture Days in Mississauga will take place from September 28 to 30, 2012 and will feature free, hands-on, interactive activities that encourage residents to discover arts and culture in the city. The Civic Centre will also open its doors for hourly tours on September 29, 2012 as part of Doors Open Mississauga.

For more information and for submission forms, please contact Paola Poletto, arts supervisor, Culture Division at 905-615-3200 extension 4063 or visit and
