Bookmark this page and be sure to come back on May 7 and 8, 2015 for the full Congress program and moderated online discussion. In the meantime, get inspired with these ideas and plan a viewing session in your community:

Getting local Culture Days organizers and potential collaborators together in person to hear interesting speakers and discuss best practices is a great way to spark new ideas and generate opportunities. You know that buzz you get when you go to a great conference? You’re filled with ideas, you’ve met all these great new contacts, and you’re filled with renewed energy and desire to collaborate. If you can’t fly to Edmonton to attend the Congress in person, consider taking advantage of the free livestream and organizing a sort of ‘local congress’ – a community meet-up to watch and discuss the Congress livestream together.

It’s easy, you can keep it loose and informal, and it’s not too late to start organizing one now.

The dates and speakers have already been selected: Thursday, May 7 – Friday, May 8, 2015.  You can view the speakers bios here. Here a few basic items and tips you’ll need to organize a community Congress Meet-Up:
