The third annual Culture Days weekend will take place September 28th to the 30th, and will feature thousands of free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to discover the world of artists, historians, architects, curators, designers and other creative people within their communities.
Culture Days was created in 2010 as a collaborative, coast-to-coast volunteer movement to raise awareness and participation of Canadians in the field of arts and culture.
Culture Days activities are displayed on the official event website at culturedays.ca, but check back often as new activities are being added every day. All Culture Days activities must meet the following basic criteria: a free event, open to the public, that involves audience participation or reveals a behind-the-scenes aspect to give the public a better understanding of the inner world of arts and culture.
In order to access a comprehensive summary of activities scheduled for your neighbourhood, simply go to the "Find Activities" section of the Culture Days website (http://www.culturedays.ca/en/2012-activities) and type in your postal code before clicking on "View Results Listing."
