One more day until the start of our 8th Festival and (fingers crossed) the weather forecast looks good for tomorrow's Downtown Streetfest.
This year's photo gallery is now up and will continue to grow as the Festival progresses. For now, check out the Book Spine Poetry Gallery at Lloydminster Public Library and pictures from the Arts Show at the Lloydminster Cultural and Science Centre.

Once again, Arts Without Borders and Lloydminster Public Library invite you to create your very own Book Spine Poetry to be displayed in the Library during the Festival.
Book Spine Poetry is made by stacking books so that when you read their spines, it makes a poem. Poems range from quite short (4 or 5 books) to epics. They can use any type of book as long as it has legible words on the spine.
To have your poem included in our exhibit, create the poem, take a digital picture of your work and submit it using our online form. Submissions are limited to no more than three (3) per person. Each submission gets you an entry in our draw for a prize.
Poems will be printed out and displayed at Lloydminster Public Library during the month of June. We will also have a slideshow of entries on our website.
