Creative Collaboration Towards Reconciliation
In September 2015, sixteen Simcoe County artists were inspired to initiate a {Re}conciliation Art Project. They came together to learn from each other, share stories, gain understanding and collaborate on a linked series of artworks. The project is titled after the Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission: “A strategy for indigenous and non-indigenous artists to undertake collaborative projects and produce works that contribute to the reconciliation process.”

Little Local Mama Market

It’s about time Orillia had their very own Mama & Mini Pop-up shop featuring local vendors from the surrounding areas! We will have Baby, Tots, Young children and even Mama products and accessories that are created with love and care from local businesses!

I found when I first became pregnant that Orillia does not have many options for Mama’s & Mini’s and wanted to create a space for this in our area!

Interested in becoming a vendor please email Elyse Tucker at

10% of the profits will be donated to a family in need nominated by yourselves in our amazing community!

No entrance fee, donations are welcome.
