"We're very fortunate to have such a talented and engaged group of artists representing BC Culture Days this year. We received many strong applications, which made it very challenging to narrow down our finalists to just seven individuals. We're all vey excited to be working together to bring attention to the importance of arts and culture in our communities," says Nazanin Shoja, BC Culture Days Manager.

Culture Days raises the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. It is a collaborative movement dedicated to providing free, hands-on, and interactive arts and culture activities to cities and towns across Canada.
