Brampton Has Made A Very Unique Top 10 List
It seems that Canada's ninth largest city has made a very interesting list.
Culture Days was created in 2010 in response to the growing recognition that a vibrant arts and cultural sector contributes directly to a healthy and stable society.
Since its official launch, Culture Days has generated enthusiastic interest, participation, and support from a rapidly growing network of artists, organizations, municipalities, as well as the private and public sector and media across the country.
In 2018, the Culture Days weekend took place from September 27 to 29 to recognize communities for promoting public participation and engagement, that:
Thrives on generosity, solidarity, and collaboration.
Values the cultural life of urban and rural communities alike.
Encourages the use of shared resources.
Is produced with a unifying spirit, bringing together the best energies in the country.
