Tonight the arts hub Creative City Centre is hosting a fifth anniversary party. Located on the second and third floor above what used to be Loggie’s Shoes (now the Capitol Jazz Club) at 1843 Hamilton, CCC was the brainchild of Marian Donnelly and various partners in the arts community.

Since opening five years ago, CCC has hosted scores of concerts, spoken word nights, art exhibits and other events, as well as serving as home base for Articulate Ink print collective and a handful of other arts organizations. It’s been a welcome addition to the downtown, so congratulations are very much are in order.

To find out more about what’s in store tonight, visit the CCC website. The fun starts at 5 p.m., and will include a reception for a textile exhibition by Melanie Monique Rose, live music and open houses at various artist studios.

To give you one example of what the CCC has accomplished, here’s a 2015 video from its Empty Room series featuring Saskatoon singer-songwriter Kirby Criddle performing her song “You Are A Cyclone”
