BC Culture Days ambassador, Jocelyn Pettit is a busy lady. After having toured Europe with her band this summer, Pettit jumped straight into her BC Culture Days ambassador role and performed at Dîner en Blanc in Vancouver, the week she returned from her tour. It's safe to say that Jocelyn feels strongly about sharing the magic of live music and dance with the public. In her ambassador blog post, Jocelyn makes sure Culture Days attendees make the most of the arts, culture and heritage offerings during the Culture Days weekend. Plain and simple.

Attending Culture Days is a great way to meet new people from your community and beyond, in a fun, participatory and social setting. With all kinds of events happening this year for Culture Days, there is something for everyone! From musical performances to art studio tours, dance workshops to acting classes, and drum circles to mural painting. Here are a few tips on how to make the most of your Culture Days experience:
1. Plan Your Schedule

community and/or events in other communities. With 3 days, and 7500+ activities in 900
cities and towns across the country, there are incredible choices of things to see and
2. Spread The Word
Tell your friends, family, neighbours, colleagues, teachers, radio announcers, the
person beside you on the bus, or at your next meeting, grocery store outing or BBQ.
Bring a whole crew and make it a party!
3. Check What To Bring
Does the event you are attending suggest anything you should bring? Art supplies?
Hard-soled shoes for tap dancing? Musical instruments? Pencil and paper to take
notes? Food contribution for a potluck? Enthusiasm to have a good time? (Always!)
4. Join The Community
Bring a camera or phone, take photos, post on social media and get involved by using
the #BCCultureDays and #CultureDays hashtags.
Most of all, get ready to learn, participate, listen, dance, eat and have fun!
