Culture Days - Create, Participate & Share

Culture Days is a collaborative, Canada-wide volunteer movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. The first annual Culture Days event swept across more than 700 Canadian cities and towns during the last weekend of September 2010, generating an extraordinary amount of enthusiasm in the process. This year's Culture Days weekend will take place on September 28, 29 & 30. Once again, the event will feature free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate "behind the scenes" and to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, and designers at work in their community.

For more information, please contact Nazanin Shoja at nazanin.shoja@culturedays.ca or 604-681-3535 ext. 214.
