Northern BC residents will join the thousands of Canadian communities participating in the 8th annual Culture Days celebration, September 29, 30 and October 1.
“The Northern B.C. arts and culture community is really looking forward to Culture Days, particularly after enduring the challenges that have accompanied this summer’s wildfires,” said Community Arts Council of Prince George and District Executive Director Sean Farrell.
BC Culture Days showcases the province’s vibrant arts and cultural communities, offering free, hands-on and interactive activities to the public. The Culture Days weekend acts as a multi-level national awareness campaign to inspire and catalyze greater public participation in arts, culture and heritage year-round.
This year, artists, artisans, historians, community organizers and arts enthusiasts from across the province will play host to more than 100,000 participants eager to experience a ‘behind-the-scenes’ look into the lives of local creatives.
“Our communities really galvanized around this situation and we are now regrouping to ensure that our local residents have access to the high quality arts events for which we are known. We hope locals and visitors to our region will add this celebration of arts and culture to their calendars.”
Currently, there are more than 400 activities already registered for Culture Days across B.C., representing a wide range of disciplines and cultural interests, including visual arts, music, dance, theatre, architecture, heritage, film and video, literature, culinary arts and multi-media.
