More and more cities and towns are engaging in making the Culture Days weekend a dynamic local celebration of arts and culture each year. And since Culture Days’ inception in 2010, a growing number of them have signed official proclamations to affirm their commitment to the inherent benefits of arts and culture for their citizens.
In Québec, where the inspiration for Culture Days originated, 452 municipalities have signed the official Declaration of Journées de la culture and 282 municipalities directly organize cultural activities during the weekend-long celebration of local arts and culture. To date, many cities and towns including Sudbury (ON), Richmond (BC) and Kindersley (SK) have already signed official Culture Days proclamations. Is yours next?
If you are passionate about arts and culture—an engaged citizen, artist, cultural worker, or work for a municipality or town, encourage your elected officials and mayor to make Culture Days part of its annual programs by signing an official proclamation.
