When:
Aug 23 - Sep 7, 2014 . Opening kickoff - Aug 23rd @ 3pm with outdoor projection-based works beginning at 7pm. Closing at 10pm. Regular Hours: Aug 24 - Sep 7, 2014 11am to 5:00pm – Wed to Sun – Closed Mondays and Tuesdays

Why?
To get out of the city and see a concentration of amazing art! The event brings together some of Toronto's most active artist-run centres and collectives to present satellites in the beautiful village of Warkworth, temporarily transforming it into a hub of contemporary art. Works that are rarely seen outside of metropolitan centres take on a new life in the context of a rural setting.
