The Arts Council Haliburton Highlands and Haliburton Reads & Writes committee is inviting anyone curious about the arts to save May 14 in their calendars and join them for their upcoming 6-Minute Escape on YouTube.

Spokesperson Kate Butler said building on the success of last fall’s inaugural event, the committee is delighted to host its second video premiere on the theme of transformation.

Butler said audiences can join in the multimedia extravaganza from anywhere in the world.

“This season’s collection will feature an entertaining mix of visual art, music and literary performance,” she said. “Each short video will allow viewers to experience firsthand the transformation of each artist’s creative practice.”

Marie Gage of the Haliburton Reads & Writes committee said: “The past year of lockdown, restrictions and uncertainty has affected us all. The Readers & Writers Committee of the Haliburton Highlands Arts Council hopes the creative imagery you will experience will lift your spirits and allow you to escape into another dimension.”

Organizers added the 6-Minute Escape will remind viewers that new experiences are waiting for us, while at the same time helping to raise much-needed funds to ensure support for the vibrant cultural community in the Highlands.

Visit on May 14 at 7 p.m. There’s no cost to attend the launch but any donations would be greatly appreciated at
