Culture days in Canada, 2018

Culture Days Weekend National Launch 2018

Culture Days is excited to be hosting a national event to kick off the 2018 Culture Days weekend. Together with media partner CBC, we will be welcoming visitors to join us for performances, activities and speeches as we launch Canada’s annual weekend to celebrate arts and culture.

Millions of Canadians engage in thousands of free activities and performances hosted by artists, cultural organizations, and municipalities in communities across Canada. From Nunavut to New Brunswick, and from British Columbia to Baffin Island – and all points in between – we share all the inspiration, artistry, creativity and expression that reflects the mosaic of Canadian culture.

As a leading national voice for an active and engaged cultural life, we provide marketing and industry development resources that lead to greater cultural engagement. The Culture Days national awareness campaign culminates in a three-day celebration of the arts starting on the last Friday of September.

Rembrandt house in Amsterdam, 2018

It was a great experience to visit Rembrandt house in Amsterdam. When I visited this house, I felt I have taken a trip to the past and imagined myself during that era.

By seeing each room and paintings there, I felt existence of Rembrandt inside the house!

You shouldn’t miss this amazing place.
