|Alberta Art Days September 30 - October 2, 2011|
Alberta Arts Days is an annual celebration of our culture, heritage, artistic diversity and provincial pride. All galleries, communities, governments, organizations, schools, libraries, media outlets, cultural and recreation facilities, and individual Albertans join in the celebration!
Alberta Arts Days began in 2008 as a one-day event to recognize the value of Alberta's arts and cultural communities. Since then, it has expanded into a vibrant, three day, province-wide celebration. This inspirational movement has raised the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life.
Last year, thousands of Albertans discovered, experienced and celebrated our unique culture, heritage, artistic diversity and provincial pride through 682 events in 91 communities throughout the province. Alberta Arts Days 2011, September 30 to October 2, will continue to showcase the province's artists, arts organizations and cultural industries, while encouraging Albertans to discover the important role the arts plays in developing a prosperous, vibrant society.
