About Culture Days
Culture Days is a collaborative coast-to-coast grassroots movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of Canadians of all ages in the Arts and Culture of their communities.
With the support of a National Steering Committee and volunteer Provincial and Territorial Committees, artists, cultural workers, organizations, groups, volunteers and supporters self-mobilize to host free participatory public activities that take place in major cities and towns throughout the country over the last weekend of September each year.
The New Brunswick Culture Days Committee, composed of various volunteers from across the arts and culture community in the province, provided help to activity organizers throughout the summer by offering them a platform to promote their event (via the official website, social media and other promotional efforts).
