CULTURE DAYS at the NAC 2011 
All activities are free, no ticket required, bilingual and open to all ages except where noted.

Launched in September 2010, Culture Days ( is a free annual event
designed to invite the public to celebrate and explore arts and culture in every province
and territory in Canada.
The 2011 Culture Days weekend will take place in every province, simultaneously on September 30, October 1 & 2, 2011 and is expected to see hundreds of communities of all sizes take part from coast to coast to coast. Celebrating its fifteenth anniversary this year, Québec’s annualJournées de la culture event inspired the initiation of Culture Days andAlberta Arts Days, established in 2008, helped to spur on the national movement. Both provincial events take place concurrently with Culture Days. The first annual Canada-wide Culture Days celebration was held in September 2010 over three days in more than 700 Canadian cities and towns.
