TORONTO, May 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Right on time to mark our collective monumental shift, Culture Days wants you to reimagine how we see and experience art and culture–and how you’ll share it with the world. Event and activity registration is now open, easier to use, and contains more choices to showcase expression than ever before. The only thing missing is your contribution! Whether indoors, outdoors, or online share creativity that’s all your own this September 24 to October 24, 2021.
This year, Culture Days unveils an easier-to-navigate website, a more comprehensive range of event and activity types, and a Participation Guide that makes planning the event of the year as easy as paint-by-numbers. We’ve had more than a year of having to search for the light, colour, music, movement, and expression that bring us joy, and it’s time to get back to sharing it once again.
Culture Days has used this time to collaborate with the arts sector and industry organizations, collectives, and individuals to support, create, and innovate in anticipation of better times. Pivoting to accommodate the unrecognizable changes the pandemic brought with it, Culture Days 2020 was a 4-week-long celebration on a national scale. Thousands of event organizers and millions of participants came together to spark creativity, build community, and celebrate nationally. As we slowly reemerge, it’s time to reimagine and reconnect... are you in?
Why Put on a Culture Days Event?
Culture Days offers free resources to support event and community organizers to successfully plan and promote their own Culture Days events. Participating in Culture Days as an artist, group, organization, or municipality means becoming part of a national movement, including benefiting from a national, multi-channel advertising campaign and the support of our stellar partners and sponsors including the CBC, Pattison, and Cineplex.
Cultural groups of all shapes and sizes, libraries, museums, municipalities, clubs and community groups, individual artists and creators can be part of Culture Days by offering participatory art or cultural events between September 24 to October 24, 2021.
