Culture Days is devoted to providing Canadians with opportunities to participate in, and appreciate, all forms of arts and culture. The national celebration will highlight thousands of artists and cultural organizations in cities far and wide to interact with visitors in “behind the scenes” activities.
Culture Days is an incredible opportunity to “discover more about your community through the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, designers and creative people in their communities.” A full list of activities and participating organizations is available at culturedays.ca
