On Saturday, September 29 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. residents of all ages are invited to take part in hands-on and behind-the-scenes activities, performances and art exhibitions at Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre (QEPCCC) where artists will share their creative process, inspirations and techniques.
“The town is excited to officially be a part of Culture Days — joining millions of Canadians who are participating in activities that celebrate the impact of culture in their communities,” Mayor Rob Burton said. “I encourage our residents to come out and enjoy the variety of activities we’re offering and engage with the art and culture that enriches our town.”
Planned in partnership with the Oakville Arts Council and other local arts groups, staff at QEPCCC has been busy organizing an amazing line-up of local cultural activities, including:
• The Academy of Music – Oakville Celtic Fiddlers Club
• Learn a stitch, Oakville Fibre Artists
• Clay Critters
• Real Recording Studio in Action
“The Oakville Arts Council is pleased to be working with the town,” said Megan Whittington, Executive Director. “We know that amazing things can be accomplished when the creative spirit is nurtured. Culture Days offers an opportunity for our artists and arts groups to share and inspire the community.”
A full schedule of events is now available on the town’s website at www.oakville.ca.
A national cultural initiative launched in 2010, Culture Days is a collaborative volunteer movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities and has featured free, hands-on interactive activities from coast to coast.
