Aurora Pops Up! 2022

The Aurora Cultural Centre seeks to celebrate the renewal of performing arts with Aurora Pops Up! This outdoor performing arts festival is designed to revitalize the creative energy of Aurorans by staging a series of short live performances of music and dance in outdoor spaces across the town, open to everyone and free of charge. Aurora Pops Up! aims to look at how cultural programming could intersect with the daily lives of the public in a deeper, more meaningful way. And how live performance could transcend entertainment, offering unique experiences, moments of connection and inspiring new ways of being around each other.
