About Culture Days
On the last weekend of each September, millions of people across the country attend thousands of free, participatory arts and culture events in their communities and beyond. By profiling hands-on arts and cultural programming and creating direct connections between the public and creators, Culture Days is making arts and culture more accessible and is building measureable support for the sector.
Culture Days works with a wide network of event organizers—from grassroots community volunteers to major arts and culture institutions—to make the weekend a success. With Culture Days offices operating in many provinces and territories, the national organization maintains a Canada-wide scope, while having on-the-ground connection to communities. We provide marketing and industry development resources that lead to greater cultural engagement and manage a multi-tiered advertising campaign that provides a common thread through the variety of events happening over the weekend.
Culture Days is a collaborative initiative that welcomes public participation. Everyone has a part to play in Culture Days whether you’re already passionate about the arts or interested in discovering something new.
