For the general public, North Shore Culture Days is an opportunity to participate in the creative process, discover new places and experience the exciting 'behind the scenes' world of arts and culture happening all across our North Shore community. For local arts, culture and heritage groups, North Shore Culture Days is an opportunity to open your doors and strut your stuff, engage the community, seek out new audiences and supporters.

The fifth annual Culture Days will be celebrated in hundreds of cities and towns from coast to coast to coast, with thousands of free activities from a wide range of disciplines including: visual arts, music, dance, theatre, architecture, heritage, film and video, literature, culinary arts and new media.  Last year, 1.7 million Canadians participated in over 7,500 activities spanning over 825 communities across Canada with North Vancouver making it into the Top 10 list of cities! The momentum continues to build and participation in North Shore Culture Days 2014 is anticipated to surpass last year’s.
