Call for Participation

Everyone is encouraged to get involved – whether you are a professional or amateur cultural creator (artist, artisan, educator, animateur, historian, curator, choreographer, architect, designer, to name a few), municipality, library, group or organization in an urban, suburban or rural community – you can play a part in Culture Days.

This is an open invitation for all individuals, organizations, groups and municipalities to register free interactive arts or cultural activities in your community during the next Culture Days on September 25, 26 & 27, 2015.

Not organizing an activity? As a member of your community, you play a key role in showing artists and cultural organizations that they matter. Whether you are already an active participant in arts and culture or curious to discover new opportunities within your creative community, Culture Days is the perfect occasion for you!

There is no fee to register. If you want to register a free participatory or interactive arts or cultural activity during the upcoming fifth annual Culture Days weekend, sign up or log into your account here and follow the five easy steps. 

Check out the Culture Days Participation Guide to learn more about how you can present an activity and other ways to get involved.
