BRAMPTON, ON (Wednesday, June 24) As we near the end of National Pride Month in June, enter Peel Pride Month in July and celebrate Canada’s 153rd birthday, Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) will host a weeklong celebration of National Pride with virtual activities each day and special feature videos from June 29 to July 3. Starting July 7, we shift gears into Summer Staycations @ Home, a summer-long series of activities (each Tuesday to Thursday) and kick-off the week with an instructor-led activity video each Tuesday.
Weekly themes for the PAMA Staycation @ Home activities include:
- July 7 – 9: Geometric Art That Pops

Each Tuesday, we will premiere a special instructor-led activity video on all our social media channels (Facebook , Instagram, Twitter and YouTube) to kick-off the week along with step by step activity sheets (each Tuesday to Thursday). We will also continue to feature behind-the-scenes videos with our curators from the art gallery, museum and archives that tie into our weekly themes!
