North Shore Culture Days Starts Friday!

The North Shore Culture Days weekend is almost here and with 60+ events now registered, it's looks like we're in store for  an exciting three days of creative activity!

Posters, brochures, buttons and balloons have been circulated and the media has been alerted!  If you're hosting an event, you'll find it in the special 4-page North Shore Culture Days insert in the Wednesday September 24th issue in the North Shore News.  

Please join us on Friday September 26th from 5:00-5:30pm for the North Shore Culture Days Kick Off in Shipbuilders' Square at the final Friday Night Market of the season.  Our three North Shore Mayors will be centre stage with special musical guests from Trooper, Doug & the Slugs and Fairfield music to help kick off the celebrations.  Please spread the word, grab family and friends, and come on down to the waterfront to share in the festivities!  Learn more at www.artsoffice.ca/enews

Here is a final checklist to help you promote your North Shore Culture Days event:

  • Reach out to your regular audience, followers, groupies and friends. Word of mouth is one of the most effective way of promoting your activity.
  • Promininently display your North Shore Culture Days poster so it's easy to see from the street.
  • Take pictures of your activity and share them on social media.
  • Direct people to the website for the most up-to-date list of activities artsoffice.ca/news/ns_cdays
  • Make sure you have lots of info about your own organizational activities on hand for people to pick up.
  • Have a good time!

This is the third year that we have sought to make Culture Days our own here on the North Shore.  Thank you to all of the artists, cultural groups, creative individuals and organizations for your enthusiasm and support in making it happen again this year!

If you have questions, or need additional materials, please contact me before 12noon on Friday September 26.
