Culture Days raises the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. With the support of volunteer groups at the national, provincial and local levels, hundreds of thousands of artists, cultural workers, organizations and groups, volunteers and supporters self-mobilize to host free participatory public activities that take place in hundreds of cities and towns throughout the country over the last weekend of September each year.
From highlighting your community, raising your profile and meeting new audiences, to networking and connecting with like-minded citizens, the reasons are multiple! Your participation and support is fundamental to growing and nurturing involvement in arts and culture.
The fifth annual Culture Days weekend will take place September 26, 27 and 28, 2015, and will feature thousands of free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate behind-the-scenes, to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, designers and other creative people in their communities. Culture Days is a collaborative initiative that welcomes your participation. Everyone can play a role in Culture Days:
Whether you are already passionate about arts and culture or curious to discover new cultural experiences, an artist, arts or cultural organization, community group, municipality, library, school, citizen, or business person, you can participate in and contribute to Culture Days!
