Culture Days to Hold Information Session for Presenters
May 27, 2013 -
The public is invited to attend an information session on Wednesday, June 5 at 4 p.m. in Memorial Hall at City Hall, 216 Ontario St. The meeting will be conducted by Maya Bedward, Ontario Arts Council's Culture Days Animator/Coordinator, who will speak to how to get involved with Culture Days – September 27 to 29. Culture Days is a nation-wide roster of inspiring cultural activities and presentations.
Interested members of the community are invited to attend a brief presentation in Memorial Hall to learn how they can get involved with Culture Days. Individuals or organizations can host a free participatory or interactive arts or cultural activity to offer to the public during the Culture Days weekend—be it new or something that's already planned—register it free at www.culturedays.ca. Don't worry if all the details of the activity are incomplete at this stage, you can create a draft of your activity and tune it up later. The important thing is to register events and activities now.
Since its inception in 2010, Culture Days has grown to boast thousands of individual artists, diverse cultural groups, organizations, municipalities, and festivals that come together nationally to catalyze and inspire greater participation in arts and culture. By featuring free, hands-on, interactive activities, the public is invited to the behind-the-scenes world of artists, creators, and historians.
