You can partner with Mission Culture Days

Culture Days takes place Sept. 28-30 – last year Mission hosted 44 activities

Join the Culture Days movement this year and be a part of Canada’s largest celebration of arts, culture and heritage.

Mission Culture Days is open to everyone, and organizers are inviting businesses, community organizations or neighbourhoods to host an event September 28-30, 2018.

Last year the District of Mission hosted a whopping 44 activities during the Culture Days weekend, placing fifth in Canada in its category of towns with a population under 50,000. This year, organizers hope to add even more activities.

The annual national Culture Days celebration weekend takes place in communities across the country every year at the end of September.

The weekend features free, hands-on activities that allow the public to discover the world of artists and creators in their communities. This is a collaborative, roaming event, with fun activities taking place all over the country.

There are many reasons to host an event. You gain local, provincial and national exposure, engage your community and raise your cultural profile, and help highlight the contribution arts and culture make to the local economy and quality of life in Mission.

The Mission Cultural Resources Commission is ready to assist you. They can help with suggestions, help find a venue, register an activity and assist with publicity.

Check out the national website at culturedays.ca for more information, and contact the Mission Culture Days Team at culture@mission.ca or call the Mission Archives at 604-820-2621.
