The County of Brant will be celebrating Culture Days starting Friday, September 22 through Sunday, October 15.
This year, to help make Brant Celebrates Culture Days a reality, the County of Brant provided funds to help eligible organizers cover the cost of hosting.
“The County of Brant is proud to provide funding to many local groups and creators,” said Mayor David Bailey. “With more groups able to fund their programs, there will be many opportunities to experience a behind the scenes view of the local groups and institutions that make up the community.”
Culture Days is a national celebration of culture. Culture Day programs invite the public to get hands-on and behind-the-scenes to highlight the importance of arts and culture in our communities. Activities range from a Heritage Scavenger Hunt to Theatre Workshops, Cultural Storytelling and much more.
“We are thrilled to participate in this year’s Culture Days,” said Kayla Cicman, Arts, Culture and Heritage Officer for the County of Brant. “We have 33 events happening across the County, hosted by various organizers. These events are free and will allow residents to learn and take part in the amazing arts and cultural scene that is thriving in Brant!”
Funding applications are now closed, however organizers can still register their events.
“If you would like to host an event during Brant Celebrates Culture Days, there is still time to sign up,” said Cicman. “Visit our Culture Days webpage for registration information and Culture Days events happening in the County.”
