Culture Days invites everyone to create, participate and celebrate arts and culture activities in every province, territory and community across Canada. In its fifth year, Culture Days is now firmly entrenched in our national cultural calendar and is committed to making culture a daily habit. This year’s Culture Days weekend features free, hands-on, interactive activities that invites the public to participate “behind the scene” and discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, and designers at work in their community. From visual arts, heritage, farmer’s markets, street festivals, collective art-making projects, theatre, dance and music to avant-garde performance art, new/digital media and spoken word, there is something for everyone. Manitoba once again promises to further showcase and celebrate the diverse artistic and cultural talent within our province from as far south as Altona to as far north as Churchill and everywhere in between. Nuit Blanche Winnipeg, a returning favourite and weekend highlight takes place through the night on Saturday, September 27 from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am. The event is a night-long arts celebration that includes multi-disciplinary performances, light installations and film screenings at various locations in the three zones: Downtown, the Exchange District and St. Boniface. Look out for the orange trolley! This free shuttle service travels throughout Nuit Blanche Winnipeg allowing participants to move easily between venues. Culture Days activities are being registered on a regular basis on the website. To plan your weekend and to find out more information, visit www.mb.culturedays.ca.
