Earth Endeavours Ambassador Series

This Year’s Ambassador Projects

For Culture Days 2022, our eight ambassadors have engaged in a season of digital content creation and in-person celebration to create diverse projects, with support from their communities.

The BC Culture Days Earth Endeavours Ambassador Series is a collection of community-engaged creative projects calling the public to action. With a new creative challenge launched each Monday in July and August, our 2022 ambassadors invited everyone to explore their relationship with the Earth and each other, navigating a way towards a healthier future together. The projects consider a range of topics from discussions on nature, the climate crisis, post-pandemic recovery, and Truth and Reconciliation.

During Culture Days, from September 23-October 16, a series of micro-documentaries detailing the results of the ambassadors’ Earth Endeavours projects premiered on the Culture Days website. The documentaries are produced and directed by each ambassador with the help of community partners, local videographers, and BC Culture Days.
