Since theatres and live music venues had to shut their doors to protect the public, they’ve taken to the Internet to bring art directly to the fans. Here’s a list of those we have found and we’ll keep adding to it, so keep checking back (and let us know of any we’ve missed!).
1. Alberta Aviation Museum‘s Family Corner
The Alberta Aviation Museum will be producing online daily activities, education features, online tours, downloadable family activities, and more.
2. Citadel Theatre‘s Stuck in the House Series
Edmonton artists who have lost income due to cancelled projects or gigs will present performances on the Citadel Facebook page throughout the current hiatus. Donations can be made on their website with the proceeds going directly to the performers.
3. House of Hush Burlesque‘s Livestream Shows
The local burlesque troupe livestreams an 18+ show. The show is pay-what-you-can by donation on EventBrite, as well as offers a curated tipping menu to add something a little special to the performances.
4. Metro Cinema‘s Virtual Movie Screenings
Metro Cinema is teaming up with independent distributors to offer curated online streaming opportunities, allowing you to enjoy Metro-calibre programming in the safety of your own home. Online content is available 24 hours a day.
5. Starlite Sessions‘ Online Concerts
This endeavour by the Starlite Room hosts online concerts, open mic nights, and more in a digital venue. The goal of Starlite Sessions is to assist live music venues, artists, musicians, the City of Edmonton, and the Province of Alberta in creating and retaining viable revenue centres within the live music/arts and cultural communities.
6. TELUS World of Science‘s Science at Home
Edmonton’s non-profit science centre launched a section of their website dedicated to fun DIY science experiments you can do at home using household products.
