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. Next year’s Culture Days weekend will take place on September 27, 28 & 29. 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.
As a grassroots, collaborative movement, Culture Days relies on your participation. Whether as an arts or cultural organization, an artist, a municipality, a school, a citizen, a business person…everyone can play a role in shaping this event. You can even apply to be one of the 2018 BC Culture Days Artist Ambassadors! Up to eight selected applicants from across BC will receive $1,000 each, as an honorarium and production budget for presenting a Culture Days activity. Learn more here about how you can get involved!
