Workshop Details

Information sessions are taking place in communities across Ontario hosted by community arts councils, municipalities and arts and cultural associations. Ontario Culture Days and local staff will share tools, tips and resources for Culture Days activity organizers while encouraging networking and collaboration in the community. Information sessions bring together artists, arts and cultural groups, municipal cultural staff, community arts councils, businesses, local media and other people interested in forging collaborations to organize Culture Days 2017 activities. All information sessions are free to attend and everyone is welcome.

“The information session really helped by providing insights for growing our event. The number and quality of the available resources is quite impressive. We are now in good shape for moving forward with our planning and are able to focus on the key steps required to maximize the national Culture Days connection.”
