Registration is now OPEN! Thanks for your patience as SaskCulture has been developing a shiny new event registration system—they are thrilled to launch it with a few new bells and whistles. They aim to make registration a breeze while ensuring that audiences have a pleasant experience planning out their Culture Days weekend. Head on over to their new site to create your Culture Days Account and start registering your events and hubs. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re here to help!
Plan ahead: the deadline to register your events is September 16th
Check out the new hub creation system with their DIY hub tool that allows you to connect published events together, either geographically or thematically. If you’re organizing a series of events around a specific route or an all-weekend festival, a studio tour, or a collection of related activities within one municipality, then hubs are for you. Your hub page will bring together your chosen events and serve as a one-stop-info-shop for everything you’ve got planned. Be sure to register your individual events first before setting up your hub; a hub must have at least 3 published events before it can go live. Orient yourself to their new hub creation system with this quick video walk-through. You can also brush up on what a hub is by clicking here and/or check out one’s that’s already been published in Wolfville, NS.
Cultural Days 2018 was September 28, 29 & 30, 2018. Over 2.5 million Canadians celebrated arts and culture in their communities making 2018 the most-attended Culture Days on record. So many communities went above and beyond to earn a shout-out on the Canada annual Top Ten list. The list honours standout levels of registered activities, recognizing cities and towns segmented by population size. Nearly all of the communities placed in the Top Ten this year had designated Culture Days hubs or corridors, which played a key role in increasing attendance. Congratulations to Saskatoon who made the list, and kudos to their superstar arts and culture organizers for making it happen!
