Mayor Brian Bigger invites residents to come together to share inspiration, support and hope during these unprecedented times.

Greater Sudbury is a vibrant, artistic and cultural destination thanks to our many creative individuals and tireless volunteers whose organizations provide festivals, learning activities, workshops, performances and exhibitions.

Physical distancing to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic means event organizers and artists must be more creative than ever to uplift our spirits during these difficult times.

The City of Greater Sudbury has gathered resources and activities from across the web to make it easier for residents of all ages to find what they need to feed the mind and the spirit.

Check Important Links and the City of Greater Sudbury website at www.greatersudbury.ca/COVID for virtual events, activities and information. Stay connected by helping others, sharing your creativity or by asking questions. We're here to help.

Stay safe. Stay informed. Stay positive. We’ll get through this together. #greatertogether
