Call for Participation

Thank you to the thousands of Canadians who registered an activity for the 2015 Culture Days weekend!

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 start planning your free interactive arts or cultural activities to take place in your community during the next Culture Days on September 30, October 1 & 2, 2016.
