Saturday, September 27, 2014, was a day packed with fun, art and cultural activities for residents of all ages who gathered in celebration of the national Culture Days campaign at Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre (QEPCCC).
“Culture Days is becoming one of the town’s most popular annual events,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “I’m pleased to see Oakville residents embracing Council’s shared vision of creating an arts and culture hub at QEPCCC.”
Thanks to a partnership with the Oakville Arts Council and QEPCCC’s active members, participants had the opportunity to conduct the Oakville Symphony, learn how to play the steel pan with the Canadian Caribbean Association, record a song in the recording studio, create creatures in the woodshop and the ceramic studio and much more! The most attended free show was DuffleBag Theatre’s magical performance of Peter Pan held in the Black Box Theatre.
Many of the day’s events were shared on Twitter using the hashtag #culturedaysoakville.
Culture Days is a grassroots, nation-wide movement that aims to raise awareness, participation and engagement in the arts and cultural life of Canadian communities. For more information, visit the Culture Days website.
