UMBRELLA ARTS NEWSPAPER
Umbrella Community Partner
Umbrella is the Quinte Arts Council's bi-monthly arts newspaper. Each issue features a two-month calendar of events (including art shows, concerts, theatre, films, heritage and literary events, calls for entry and workshops) as well as a number of articles featuring local artists, major art events, the council's member group activities, cultural activities, and information pertinent to the community in general as well as artists in the area. Each issue highlights the performing arts, film, visual arts, heritage, literary arts and arts in education.
Receiving Umbrella by mail is one of the benefits of membership with the QAC. For only $35 per year, you can become a Community Friend and help off-set the cost of publishing and circulating Umbrella in the greater Quinte region.
Another benefit of membership is free listings in the two-month calendar of events. Articles, spotlights and event listings are also free of charge.
