Cogeco Stars Among Us is the community’s only arts awards celebration recognizing the talent of local artists and arts groups from across the different disciplines including digital arts, literary arts, performing arts, and visual arts. This arts celebration helps shine a spotlight on local talent to foster creativity, encourage emerging artists and highlight the excellence of the arts in our community. In total, six arts awards are presented throughout the evening mixed with a variety of excellent performances, a three-course meal, and film presentations.
Prior to the event, a maximum of three finalists are chosen in each category, and the selection of the finalists is conducted by jurors who are experts in each arts discipline.
The event draws amazing talent, as well as civic and business leaders who recognize the value of community arts. The evening follows a similar format to the “Oscars” and is broadcast on TVCogeco. Over the past four years we have had wonderful entertainment including Susan Aglukark, Johannes Linstead, Prakash John and many other amazing local artists. Tickets will go on sale early July, when we announce the finalists and entertainment for the evening.
We celebrate the local arts and encourage a creative and innovative community. Together, with our supporters we grow and nurture the arts in our community.
