The York Region Arts Council (YRAC) and Downtown Markham came together for an exciting event promoting interaction and awareness of creative individuals, organizations, businesses and happenings in York Region. The social networking event at the award-winning Downtown Markham Presentation Centre in Markham on Thursday, May 8 gave attendees the chance to participate in a reading of an original script by Shadowpath Theatre Production's Alex Karolyi.
"Arts After Hours Networking Events are some of YRAC's most anticipated events because they bring together creatives from all over York Region in an open and engaging environment," explained host Samantha Rodin, Associate Director at YRAC. "The Downtown Markham event builds on notions of connectivity and collaboration by exposing attendees to a world of arts and culture opportunities in Markham's new urban core."
"We believe that the world's best cities are not defined by their streets or their buildings, but by the life that happens in between," said Evelynn Ratcliffe, Retail Marketing, The Remington Group. "We were thrilled to host YRAC and their guests as they help breath life in to our community and join in learning about why Downtown Markham is the Place to Be Inspired."
Shadowpath Theatre Productions Artistic Producer and Founder Alex Karolyl facilitated a reading from an original script, guests mingled and enjoyed food and drink, and some lucky attendees won prizes donated by local businesses and organizations.
