2019 Theme

As one of our 10-year anniversary initiatives, Culture Days is examining the arts and culture sector through the lens of Creativity, the Arts, and Well-being. The topic is the anchor of our year-round communications—across social media, we’ve been sharing research, ideas, and stories involving the many ways arts and culture are connected to the well-being of individuals and the vitality of our communities. Our special blog series by Leah Sandals deep dives into the theme by profiling organizations doing work in related fields.

Nearly every Culture Days event fits within the theme of creativity, the arts, and well-being. The work you do as artists and organizers have deep, meaningful impacts in the communities where you live and work, and Culture Days is the perfect opportunity to share how and why you do it!

Gain inspiration on the topic by reading our special blog series, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to join the conversation.
