More Than 200 Free Events Throughout the Region
Metro Vancouver residents will join thousands of other Canadians in celebrating this year’s Culture Days, September 26 through 28.
More than 200 free, interactive activities are planned throughout Metro Vancouver (see community highlights link below), inviting everyone to get involved with culture, heritage, the arts and artists in their communities.
The fifth annual Culture Days will be celebrated in hundreds of cities and towns across Canada. Events are taking place in more than 50 communities in British Columbia, from rural towns to major urban hubs. Many BC mayors and councils will officially proclaim Culture Days celebrations to support this growing cultural phenomenon.
More than 350 activities are scheduled across BC, with over 200 taking place in Metro Vancouver. Programming represents all disciplines and cultural interests, including visual arts, music, dance, theatre, architecture, heritage, film and video, literature, culinary arts, and new media.
“Culture Days is an opportunity to showcase the enormous talent and creativity that exists across our province. From street art to high art, pop culture to traditional culture, Culture Days is an opportunity for people to engage and interact with art and artists in a different way,” says Rob Gloor, executive director of the Alliance for Arts and Culture and chair of the BC Culture Days task force.
“I encourage everyone to express their love of culture by taking in some of the fantastic free activities on offer.”
