Creating a Cultural Hub or Corridor is a great strategy to increase participant attendance and visit duration to Culture Days sites. Not only that, but the process of creating a hub or corridor fosters deeper partnerships and better sharing of resources. For those reasons and more, Culture Days encourages organizers to think about ways they can pool talent and expand their networks to create buzzing cultural hubs and corridors.
We've developed a one-stop guide to all things Hubs + Corridors! Download our Hubs + Corridors Toolkit to get started building partnerships and making plans.
Are you already planning a Hub or Corridor for 2018? Be sure to submit your H+C information separately in our Google Form. This ensures that Culture Days is aware of your plans, and you'll get the extra perks and promo that come with creating cultural Hubs + Corridors!
We also have a webinar and quick tip sheet on the topic here.
Generally speaking, to qualify as a Culture Days Hub or Corridor, the following criteria should be met:
Hubs provide centralized destinations for people to visit, often made up of unique consortiums of collaborative cultural programs in a shared space. Think dynamic cultural centres or busy public plazas.
A Corridor is a creative cluster and arts and culture destination typically associated with an outdoor space. Replacing a single, centralized site with a locus of programs and events that are in close, walkable proximity to each other, cultural corridors often take shape in local neighbourhoods or Main Streets.
