The City of Barrie’s Department of Culture is pleased to announce its third annual Culture Days, a Canada-wide celebration designed to catalyze and inspire public participation in arts and culture.
Culture Days is a collaborative pan-Canadian volunteer movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. The first annual Culture Days event was held in September 2010 in over 700 Canadian cities and towns and, by all accounts, was a great success.
Culture Days events feature many free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate “behind the scenes” to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, and designers at work in their community.
Culture Days is a collaborative movement that relies on your participation. Everyone can contribute to the Culture Days movement: as artist, cultural professional, arts organization participant, business person, or member of the public. Plan to come out and join this exciting cross-country network and invite your friends, family and colleagues to do so too! Interactive demonstrations, workshops and tours will be occurring in many locations across Barrie, including recreation centres, malls and downtown businesses.
Hard copies of the “Passport to Culture” are available at the information desks at the following locations:
- City Hall Information Desk (70 Collier Street)
- Department of Culture (2nd floor of the Transit Terminal at 24 Maple Street)
- The MacLaren Art Centre (37 Mulcaster Street)
- Barrie Public Libraries (48 Dean Avenue and 60 Worsley Street)
- Grey and Simcoe Foresters Museum (36 Mulcaster Street)
