Guess Who’s Coming to The Living Arts Centre in Mississauga?

Being so close to Toronto, it's easy to forget that Mississauga has its own arts and culture scene made up of mindfully curated galleries, incredible local talent and expansive performance centres.

The Living Arts Centre recently released its 2017/18 season and it appears the City Centre performing arts centre has more than a few interesting acts scheduled to entertain audiences over the coming months.
