Edmonton Public Library Freedom Ball
Here's a chance to celebrate the freedom to read and to see the beautiful new art gallery all at the same time! The Edmonton Public Library's first-ever freedom ball is happening on February 27, 2010 and, best of all, it's FREE! Join the "Freedom Ball" page on Facebook, or visit their Freedom To Read Week website for more details.
"The Edmonton Public Library (EPL) is a champion for intellectual freedom and it is our responsibility to guarantee and facilitate access to all expressions of knowledge and intellectual activity.
This year, EPL is supporting Freedom to Read Week – an annual, nation-wide event that encourages people to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom – by hosting our first-ever Freedom Ball.
The Freedom Ball is a party that celebrates our freedom to read, view, listen, write, perform… The Freedom Ball will feature a performance by the local group, People’s Poets—three Edmonton emcees and a DJ who rap about social justice issues. We will also be showing some of the more explosive Freedom Challenge submissions.
Where: Art Gallery of Alberta (2 Sir Winston Churchill Square)
When: 7:00pm Saturday, February 27
More: Admission is FREE. All ages welcome. No registration required.
