About the Awards
The Economic and Creative Development Department and members of the Barrie arts sector will celebrate the many successes of the past year and present six individuals with hand-carved award statuettes designed by local artist Nic Rodrigo at the 2023 Barrie Arts Awards.
The Barrie Arts Awards plays an important role in our arts community, fostering the growth of the arts and culture sector by raising its profile and providing it with well-deserved recognition.
