Our capacity to inspire, nurture, create and curate the stories that emerge from our arts and cultural output is infinite. The 2015 National Congress will showcase some of these extraordinary stories from across Canada, provide practical insights and direction into how to best articulate them, and look at how evaluating and communicating the impact of our work can inspire many more.
Since its inception in 2010, Culture Days has become a vibrant portal to increase the awareness, participation and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities in well over 800 cities and towns across the country.
The annual National Congress on Culture is fast becoming a highly anticipated rallying point and networking opportunity to share and learn from a diversity of innovative experiences, trends, best practices and inspiring success stories on the impact of public engagement in arts and culture in Canada.
Join leading speakers and provocative panel guests, key decision makers, arts and private sector leaders, policy makers, funders, media influencers and artists and cultural practitioners from across Canada at the Citadel Theatre in the heart of Edmonton’s arts district in exploring the following topics during the program:
The National Congress will culminate with an awards dinner featuring Alberta’s finest talent and where the 2014 Culture Days award winners will be honoured.
Organized with the support of the Government of Alberta
