Here's what's hot

Presence is a year-long program funded by the City of Mississauga. Throughout the program, residents were invited to participate in workshops, exhibitions, and performances, to explore storytelling and uncover the city's cultural identities.

Witness the birth of a new landscape through photography. Through the eyes of creative photo artists, we can explore our relationship and connection with water, landscapes, and our shared responsibility to the Great Lakes.

The Museums of Mississauga and Mississauga Celebration Square have partnered to invite a Curator or team of Curators who identify as BIPOC to develop a project that engages with the community to be delivered in 2022.

This year Celebration Square welcomes monsters of all ages to join in the Halloween fun. Starting October 22 through to October 31, Celebration Square will bring three popular Halloween inspired stories to life. Dress up in your monster tails to explore some of our favourite monster tales.
