City of Abbotsford seeks Artists and Arts Groups for Culture Days – September 24 to October 24

Abbotsford – The City of Abbotsford is calling on Abbotsford artists and arts groups to submit an application to perform or present at this year’s Culture Days event on October 2 at the Abbotsford Recreation Centre.

Abbotsford’s event is part of a national Culture Days initiative to celebrate arts, culture, and heritage that runs from September 24 to October 24, 2021. This year’s national theme is “Re:Imagine” as Canadians are collectively imagining what a post-pandemic world could look like and how we can each contribute to that picture being brighter.

RE:IMAGINE with us.

Arts and culture emerged as a lifeline of joy, providing gifts of colour, hope, and reprieve needed to make it through this past year. Collectively, we’re imagining what a post-pandemic world could look like and how we can each contribute to that picture being brighter. Through that lens, Culture Days has chosen RE:IMAGINE as the very apt 2021 theme.

RE:IMAGINE signals a positive turning point – the commitment to building tangible change into the future of arts and culture.

Artists can apply to host eligible activities, including:

·         Performances

·         Workshops

·         Collaborative art projects

·         Artist demos

Successful applicants will receive a $500 honourarium for their activity. Applicants must complete an online application form no later than Sunday, August 29, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.

All inquiries on Culture Days in Abbotsford can be addressed to Tara-Lynn Kozma-Perrin, Culture Coordinator at tkozma-perrin@abbotsford.ca.
