Hillside Homeside Is Coming To Your House

Covid19 Pandemic Brings Hillside HOME

Guelph Ontario - You've been to Hillside Inside. You've been to Hillside (Outside). Now, you are cordially invited to Hillside Homeside!

We have been working hard to make up for missing you and missing out on our annual summer festival at Guelph Lake and we're proud to say that, with its mix of musical performances and workshops for children, teens, young adults, adults, middle-aged adults, older adults, senior citizens, and ghosts, we are bringing you a truly immersive Hillside experience via your wi-fi, data plans, and dial-up modems from 1997.

Between July 24 and 26, 2020, we'll be posting videos submitted by musical artists such as:

Plus our legendary and very interactive workshops, including how-to's on cooking, Drum & Dance, and other healing instructive session topics.

For our Drum & Dance sessions, we have workshops in Afro-Caribbean dance, twerking, belly dancing, contemporary dance, Soca, djembe basics and sangpan!

We’re also offering peacemaking workshops in dismantling racism, alternative dispute resolution, loving kindness meditation, and reducing conflict. And we'll feature videos showing you how to make Hillside-y food for the special weekend, and all kinds of activities (pickling, felting, hula hooping, Qigong, and poi).

And more to be added and announced!

Please keep an eye on our site and our Facebook page to access these videos between July 24 and 26!

NOTE: THESE VIDEOS WILL ONLY BE UP FOR HILLSIDE WEEKEND. AFTER THAT, THEY WILL BE TAKEN OFF THE INTERNET, GATHERED IN A KNAPSACK, AND HURTLED DIRECTLY INTO THE HEART OF THE SUN. WILL THEY SURVIVE THAT TRIP SO THAT YOU CAN WATCH THEM AGAIN AT YOUR LEISURE? NO, IT'S THE SUN. IT'S PRETTY HOT. THEY SHOULD MELT.

Join us at Hillside Homeside!

We are grateful to the federal, provincial and municipal governments for their support of the arts through funding programs, subsidies, honest conversations, and feverish brainstorming. To the smart and conscientious people behind the Ontario Arts Council, Canadian Heritage, Ontario Creates, the City of Guelph, Wellington County, Canada Summer Jobs, and Celebrate Ontario: thank you.

We're also opening up our online store with special Hillside Homeside 2020 merch, including t-shirts and masks! Please visit the store for more info at the link below.
