About Culture Days
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. This year’s Culture Days weekend will take place on September 30, October 1 and 2, 2016. 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, heritage workers, architects, curators, and designers at work in their community. Visit www.culturedays.ca for more information.
Ontario Culture Days is supported by the Ontario Arts Council, the Ontario Cultural Attraction Fund, the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Government of Ontario in recognition of Celebrate the Artist Weekend.
