Art Activities Needed for 

Culture Days is a national celebration of arts and culture. At the end of each September, millions of people attend thousands of participatory arts and culture events across the country. Culture Days programs invite the public to get hands-on and behind-the-scenes to highlight the importance of arts and culture in our communities.

This year, Culture Days will be held:

September 27, 28, and 29, 2019

In Milton we are in need of 1-2 hour art activities, namely things that visitors can make and take with them, on a drop-in basis (Ex. making an origami animal, painting an egg with alcohol inks, felting an ornament, etc.) or creating crafts in the main Escarpment Hall. We could also do a joint artist activity if it has an interactive component (Ex. painting a tile for a collective mosaic, etc.).

If you have not already applied, please note that we are now accepting submissions for Milton Culture Days 2019. We’re excited to see what fresh ideas you come up with this year! We’re also open to creators of our event “backdrop” (see attached for the 2018 piece by Omar Hopkinson).

As a reminder, the mandate for Culture Days can be found here:
