Umbrella is the Quinte Arts Council’s arts newspaper – 4 issues each year. Each issue features a three-month calendar of events (including art shows, concerts, theatre, films, heritage and literary events, calls for entry and workshops) as well as a number of articles featuring local artists, major art events, the council’s member group activities, cultural activities, and information pertinent to the community in general as well as artists in the area. Each issue highlights the performing arts, film, visual arts, heritage, literary arts and arts in education.
