Shoppers World in Brampton, Ontario, Canada asks its visitors to “look up, look way up” this October.
The Highway 10 and Steeles Avenue mall is encouraging Bramptonians to paint a ceiling tile for charity this summer, for their upcoming “Looking Up to the Arts” event. The tiles should represent either what Brampton means to you, or the arts in Brampton.
Anyone can paint a tile for the event by buying one at the customer service desk for $5. Once tiles are completed and returned for the event, participants receive a gift certificate for $5. The ceiling tiles must be finished and returned by October 7.
The tiles will be auctioned off at the end of the event, with money going to the Brampton Arts Council.
Local dance, music, theatre and visual arts group will perform and promote at the mall’s event, which will be held from October 12 to 22.
This isn’t Shoppers World’s only celebration of the arts. The mall is the permanent home of the Artway Gallery, a community exhibit space on the west side of the mall. Organized by Visual Arts Brampton, the space allows anyone in the community to exhibit publicly.
