Lowell TeleMedia Center, in partnership with a variety of organizations inLowell, is presenting the first Virtual Festival of the Lowell City of Learning Festival from September 29 – October 2, 2020.

From dance moves to science discovery to building a small business, the Lowell City of Learning Festival is offering a free collection of documentaries, discussions, and virtual events that will be available online.

“Lowell is a city of learning and the idea of Lowell as an educational hub is built into its DNA going back to Patrick Mogan’s vision in the late 1970s of Lowell as “an educative city.” The urban National Historical Park was part of that vision and has made Lowell a destination city. Lowell has the educational institutions, the museums and art galleries, the community of artists of all kinds, and hundreds of community groups that offer educational programming that stretches from vegetable gardening to glass blowing to citizenship training. As is often said, you can go from kindergarten to a Ph.D. and never leave the city.”

Lowell residents are invited to watch the wide variety of informative and educational programs and recorded events on LTC’s Channel 8, Lowell City of Learning’s Facebook Page @LowellLearningCity, and LTC’s Facebook Page @LTCLowell.
