Toronto Public Library, the Neighbourhood Arts Network and Ontario Culture Days are pleased to announce the seventh year of Culture Days @ Toronto Public Library.
During the previous six years of this popular program, 190 artists and arts and cultural organizations have presented 305 activities to over 9,000 people at library branches in every corner of the city. The program was created as a way to help artists and arts groups share their creative work with the public during Culture Days, a Canadian celebration of arts and culture. Now in its eighth year, Culture Days takes place annually on the last Friday of September and the subsequent weekend. For more information, visit www.on.culturedays.ca.
Toronto Public Library is offering free venues to Toronto-based artists and cultural groups wishing to be part of Culture Days on September 29 and 30, 2017. This partnership enables artists to take their practice out of their private studios into the accessible spaces of library branches so that the public can discover and engage with their work. Past participants describe Culture Days @ Toronto Public Library as a great opportunity to connect with new audiences and to build strong community relationships. From Etobicoke to Scarborough, North York and downtown Toronto, branches across the city are excited to partner with artists to deliver interactive activities to highlight the arts and culture!
Toronto-based individual artists, small and medium-sized professional arts groups as well as volunteer-run cultural organizations, collectives or groups that wish to organize their events at a Toronto Public Library branch are invited to submit an application by May 3, 2017. Activities in all artistic disciplines and cultural traditions are encouraged as well as those that appeal to families and audiences of diverse ages. We especially invite newcomer artists to apply. The Culture Days @ Toronto Public Library program is an excellent platform to introduce yourself and your art practice to your new community. To be considered for a space, the arts activity must be free and interactive.
