Culture Days is just around the corner.
How will you celebrate during your Culture Days weekend?
Well, to start, we sure hope you plan to go to an official registered activity!

Here are 3 reasons and ways to get out there and make your Culture Days weekend an unforgettable one:
1. Reconnect with an old friend or long lost love.
Know how to play an instrument, but haven’t tried in years? Never been to the local museum before? Always wanted to write a story or a script? Been meaning to take a pottery or dance class? Saw a show last month and wanna give the director your critique? Seize the day!
Get out during the Culture Days weekend and pay a visit to the local library, museum, gallery, park, theatre, cultural centre – whether there’s an official registered activity going on or not! Indulge yourself in an artistic or cultural experience. Join the local choir, register for an acting class, treat yourself to tickets to an upcoming show, or pick up that book of poetry or architecture that you’ve been eyeing.
Celebrate arts and culture by celebrating the artist or creator in you.
2. Connect with real people in real life.
Spend Culture Days with friends you haven’t seen in a while. Round up a few people and let each person pick one activity for the group to go to together. Don’t forget to snap some photos and share them on Flickr or Facebook.
Going to a Culture Days activity can also be a great way to meet new interesting people. All official activities are interactive, so you can be sure that there will be lots of conversations happening.
Come to think of it, Culture Days is an awfully good time for couples to reconnect too. Shake up that Friday night or weekend routine – try something new. Surprise your partner with something he or she would never have thought of doing, or never thought you would do!
3. Capture the action with your videos, photographs and words.
Capture the action. Culture Days is the largest public campaign to celebrate and promote cultural participation. Not only is it the largest, but we think it’s the first of its kind ever launched in Canada, and quite possibly the world. Document this massive grassroots movement. Let everyone know how your city or town rocked this Canada-wide celebration.
