Your self-guided exploration of SuperCultural British Columbia begins here with the 11th annual BC Cultural Crawl. Launched as a BC Day celebration eleven years ago, the event has become a cornerstone provincial event spanning the entire month of August.
The BC Cultural Crawl is a collection of arts and cultural events where thousands of people visit BC's arts and cultural creators, unique destinations and annual festivals in over 70 BC-wide communities. Just as every piece of art is unique, every community across BC presents a different set of experiences. The BC Cultural Crawl provides an opportunity for public engagement with their creative counterparts through outdoor theatre, visual programming, and a variety of other events that support cultural communities and art awareness throughout BC.
The 2012 Crawl promises to include more events and communities than ever before! As the kick off date of August 1st nears, how will you participate this year? Perhaps you'll plan to visit an outdoor arts festival in your town, or attend a neighbourhood art walk? You could arrange a trip to the little mountain towns of Wells and Historic Barkerville to take in the ArtWells festival featuring musical performances, workshops, independent film screenings and a visual ArtWalk. While there, join the Party of the Century (and a Half) and the Canadian National Gold Panning Championships celebrating Barkerville's 150th anniversary and the beginning of the Cariboo Gold Rush.
However you plan to explore British Columbia this summer, the BC Cultural Crawl team is here to guide you along the way.
