What is Culture Days?

Culture Days is an annual national celebration of arts, culture, and creativity!

Every year, thousands of free events are connected under a three-week national campaign to encourage people across Canada to engage with, participate in, and support arts and culture in their communities. Culture Days will take place September 20th through October 13th, 2024.

In Wynyard we are in planning stages and looking for Cultural Organizations and Individuals to participate in creating a Culture Hub. 

Creating a Culture Days hub

Culture Days hubs are collections of events and programs that are connected geographically or thematically where audiences can expect to easily find various arts and culture-themed activities and experiences in a concentrated area. Through the hub registration system, individual events can be linked to one another to form a hub with its own web page.

Some examples of Culture Days hubs include:

  • A public library hosting many different types of events
  • A Main Street or downtown public plaza that’s hosting various events along a walkable corridor
  • A Nuit Blanche-style event with installations covering a large footprint across downtown
  • An arts organization presenting a series of online events centered around the same theme

Why create a hub?

Creating a Culture Days hub is a great strategy to increase awareness, attendance, and participation while:

  • Forming new partnerships with other community organizers
  • Optimizing how you showcase the varied arts and cultural activity in your area
  • Developing networking opportunities and strengthening long-term partnerships with fellow arts and culture organizations, artists, community members, and advocates
  • Increasing the likelihood of attracting additional media coverage, VIP guests, and cultural influencers
