Key Dates:
Sat. August 26 - Fleming 50th Celebration at Peterborough Musicfest

Haliburton Campus

The Fleming College - Haliburton School of Art + Design Faculty Art Auction and Fleming 50th Celebration was a tremendous success! The evening featured fine food, unique entertainment, and an auction that raises money for student support at the Haliburton School of Art + Design. In addition to welcoming hundreds of people from the community to our Haliburton Campus, we raised $23,000 for student support.

A very well-deserved kudos goes to Dean Sandra Dupret and the entire team at the Haliburton Campus, as well as the Marketing & Advancement team. We couldn’t do this without the generous support of the artists who donate their incredible works and the many other volunteers who make the evening run so smoothly. Thank you to all involved!
