Ontario Trillium Foundation provided funding to Headwaters Arts under it’s Resilient Communities to install the three-season roof/tent structure over the Annex Courtyard, part of the
unique Alton Mill heritage complex in Caledon last year. The funding for this outdoor arts space was developed to help non-profit organizations, like Headwaters Arts, recover and rebuild from
the impacts of COVID-19. The opportunity for the community, artists and visitors to safely gather outdoors, to experience, engage and enjoy a multitude of new and exciting outdoor arts and
culture programs, art shows, workshops, concerts, and ticketed performances/events like this celebration is just the beginning of a wonderful space to showcase the talented arts in the
Headwaters Region. Headwaters Arts, volunteers, member artists and the Alton Mill Arts Centre,
