Culture Days @ the Library has been an annual part of the Culture Days weekend since 2011. For many artists, @ the Library provides an important opportunity to engage with the public, while visitors get the chance to learn something new at no cost. As important community gathering places, libraries have shown to be ideal locations to hold these programs, creating spaces for discovery, discussion and curiosity.


Culture Days supports coordination of the Culture Days @ the Library program by conducting an artist call. Artists, collectives, community organizations, and other non-profits are invited to submit their program proposal for consideration.

The deadline for the Toronto Public Library Artist Call is now passed.


We will be making some changes to the program for the 2019 Culture Days weekend, providing additional structure and formalizing of the benefits available to libraries. 

These benefits include:
- A Culture Days @ the Library webpage with a full listing of events taking place at your branches
- Featured status for your library page on our new Culture Days website
- Additional programming support, including assistance with an artist call

To ensure sufficient support for participating libraries, Culture Days has limited the spots available. The deadline to request is now passed. If you missed the opportunity to request a page, you are still invited to host Culture Days programming as part of regular registration. All organizers are invited to register their event once registration launches. 

“Public libraries and Culture Days are a natural match because both are about inclusion and making sure that culture is available to everyone in the community.”

-Stratford Public Library CEO (retired) Sam Coghlan
