Culture Days 2022 is the Most Attended Ever


TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Across Canada, a tide of arts, culture and creativity rose to a swell that saw a record 3.8 million people–or 10% of the population–participate in the 13th annual Culture Days, making it the most attended in the organization’s history. Culture Days celebrations connected communities from September 23 through October 16, 2022 and created the pathway for a substantial return to the arts.

Culture Days thrives thanks to organizers from hundreds of different communities who registered thousands of free, participatory events to create opportunities for creative expression, knowledge-sharing and community-building. Every encounter is possible thanks to the organizers, volunteers, artists, creators, and performers who make Culture Days come to life, and it’s fitting to recognize their dedication and efforts with this year’s Top Participating Communities list. For the first time, the list encompasses and denotes both in-person and online events. Hailing from rural and urban communities, municipalities, cities and towns, each host is a dedicated champion of a creative life–bravo to all!

“Art connects cultures and communities without boundaries — defining and uplifting how we learn from each other. Culture Days brings so much excitement each year and a chance to interact with people from all backgrounds — each year I have great stories to cherish.”

This year’s offerings included a day to reflect and commemorate the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. On September 30, meaningful programming explored themes of Truth and Reconciliation, shared perspectives and celebrated the creative and cultural expressions of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit stories and communities. Culture Days is grateful for the efforts and commitment of all organizers who designed programming which aimed to advance Truth and Reconciliation in their communities.
