Kaleido 2016: Helping Hands

Thanks Stantec employees and Kaleido Volunteers!

“Community” was the theme and “getting it done” was the outcome when employees with Stantec worked the backstage of the recent Kaleido Family Arts Festival. Stantec employees, along with Kaleido volunteers, cleaned up the festival site and began organizing for Deep Freeze: A Byzantine Winter Festival (January 14 and 15, 2017).

Kaleido 2016: The Power of Song

Edmonton students experienced the opportunity of a lifetime courtesy of the Kaleido Family Arts Festival. One highlight of Kaleido’s ongoing partnership with the community is the contribution festival performers make to local schools. This year, American singer and songwriter Steve Seskin visited Highlands and Spruce Avenue schools. The Grammy-nominated songwriter motivated students to release their creativity through music and song. Seskin and students composed original songs and music, which they performed during Kaleido, September 11, 2016. 

Support Kaleido and help us through our $40,000 funding shortfall! Every dollar counts and we look forward to continuing our fantastic programming for our 2017 festival with your help!
