Culture Days is a non-profit organization committed to reaching the goal of having all Canadians in every community declaring "I Love Culture" and making culture a daily habit.
The fifth annual Culture Days weekend took place on September 26, 27 and 28, 2014, and featured thousands of free, hands-on, interactive activities that invited the public to participate “behind-the-scenes,” to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, designers and other creative people in their communities.
Following the launch of the inaugural annual awards program last year, nominations are now being accepted for the 2014 awards. The awards program recognizes and showcases outstanding initiatives taken to engage the public in arts and culture during the annual Culture Days event. Award nominations will be assessed and winners determined by an independent jury of Canadian arts and community leaders. Award winners will granted an all expenses trip to the 2015 National Congress on Culture in May 2015 and share their experience during the program, a $1,000 cash prize, and be honoured at an awards dinner during that event. Nominations of the 2014 awards are being accepted until Friday, December 12, 2014. Check out the guidelines and nominate now for the 2014 awards!
