Culture Days

Join us for this year's month-long celebration!

Culture Days is extending beyond the traditional Culture Days weekend to a more inclusive and interactive four-week schedule of activities. Kicking off September 25 and running until October 25, Culture Days invites everyone to participate in and show appreciation for arts and culture in their own communities and nationwide!

There will be four options for programming:

  • Digital – pre-recorded
  • Digital – LIVE
  • Self-guided tours
  • Pre-registered/drop-in workshops (organizers must ensure they are adhering to regional and provincial health and safety guidelines)

Pre-booked clay and painting drop-ins are free for Culture Days!

Please note: Pre-registration for drop-in sessions – free or otherwise – is required. Check out our Programs FAQs for more information.

NEW! We now have two clay drop-in sessions available.

For the month of October, our All Ages Ceramics for children with a caregiver and Adult Ceramics for ages 18+ who are new to clay will be free in celebration of Culture Days.

Clay can be purchased (firing and glazing included in the fee) if you wish to keep your artwork. Pieces will take  three (3) weeks to be ready for pick up during a future drop-in.

NEW! Painting drop-ins for All Ages and Adults

Join us for an introduction to drawing and painting techniques, including: composition, colour and form. Use pencil and acrylic paint on canvas to explore creativity and develop technical skill. You will go home with a finished piece at the end of the session.

Project themes:

  • September 26 – Flowers and Plants
  • October 4 – Landscapes
  • October 11 – Animals
  • October 25 – Still Lifes
