Culture Days 2018
Celebrate Culture Days!
After the success of Burlington Culture Days in 2017, local creative organizations, venues, professionals and businesses are again invited to host events during the 9th annual Culture Days weekend from Sept. 28 to 30, 2018.
This national initiative aims to raise awareness, provide accessibility and encourage participation and engagement in the arts and cultural life of Burlington. The City of Burlington calls for Burlington artists, groups and arts and cultural organizations of all types to participate in Culture Days and offer free interactive arts and cultural activities during these dates. If you would like to host a Culture Days event, make sure to register your event with Culture Days.
This year's programming theme is OnBeat . Across the country, communities, organizations, and individuals are invited to participate in OnBeat by organizing drumming and/or rhythm-inspired events during Culture Days. OnBeat programming does not have to be limited to drumming. Rhythm can make its way into many different art forms and cultural practices including dance, visual arts, theatre, digital arts and storytelling. OnBeat events will activate public squares and plazas, parks, streets, concert halls, community centres, gymnasiums and other public spaces where thousands of Canadians will get on beat together!
Culture Days is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a national network of cultural connections devoted to providing Canadians with opportunities to participate in, and appreciate, all forms of art and culture. The seventh annual Culture Days weekend promotes free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate behind-the-scenes to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, designers and other creative people in Burlington.
