Cassidy, Queen's Square | March 1, 2021

This year, along with hopefully some milder weather, March is bringing some change to programs at Idea Exchange. Along with a new month of exciting events, we are updating our calendar to make it clearer, easier to navigate, and to simplify the process of signing up for and attending our ever-expanding list of online programs.

This new calendar lists all our public events, including gallery exhibitions to visit and virtual events to enjoy from home. Programs and events will continue to be offered through a number of different online services such as Zoom, Zoom webinars and Facebook live, but our new calendar makes finding and signing up for your next must-attend event easier than ever.

You can now join all or some of the programs in a series with a few clicks, add family members and friends to your registration, and cancel your own registration if you can't attend - making more room for others to enjoy our programming.

Visit our new calendar here, or view some of our highlighted events are below.
