TORONTO, May 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A windfall of colour, creativity and community is back as Culture Days announces registration for the 2022 season is now open! Culture Days is a three-week celebration of free arts and culture activities, events, workshops, and more, from September 23 through October 16, 2022. Inside, outside, and online, the annual event is an invitation for communities to share, create, participate, and celebrate the mosaic of arts and culture available across the country. Event and activity registration is now open, easier to use, and contains more choices to showcase creative expression than ever before.

It’s Easier Than Ever to Participate in Culture Days!

Cultural groups of all shapes and sizes, libraries, museums, municipalities, clubs and community groups, individual artists and creators can be part of Culture Days by offering participatory arts or cultural events and activities from September 23 through October 16, 2022. Participating in Culture Days allows organizers and creators to grow and forge deeper connections with current and potential audiences, increase visibility and showcase their offerings to a captivated audience.

Culture Days offers free resources to help support, plan and promote events. An easy-to-navigate website, extensive range of event and activity types, and Participation Guide make planning a Culture Days event effortless and accessible. Besides the benefit of enriching the surrounding community, participating in Culture Days means becoming part of a national movement, including benefiting from a national, multi-channel advertising campaign and the support of our stellar partners and sponsors, including the CBC Arts, Pattison Outdoor Advertising and Cineplex Entertainment.

A Day for Truth and Reconciliation   
Friday, September 30, 2022, is The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Federally commemorated and created to honour the lost children and survivors of residential schools and their families, The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation endeavours to acknowledge and better understand the history and harms done and engage in actions that advance Truth and Reconciliation as individuals and members of our communities.

Accordingly, Culture Days has set September 30, 2022, aside to create space exclusively for events commemorating the NDTR, including those aimed at sharing First Nations, Métis, and/or Inuit experiences and perspectives, celebrating the creative and cultural expressions of Indigenous people, stories, and communities.

Visit the dedicated Indigenous Cultural Programming to learn more about how to participate meaningfully on this integral day.
