Culture Days in Richmond near

Culture Days—Canada’s coast-to-coast-to-coast celebration of arts and culture—is returning to Richmond Sept. 30 to Oct. 2.

This three-day family-friendly event gives everyone a chance to participate in free, hands-on, interactive activities that provide a glimpse into the world of local artists, curators, writers and other creative producers.

“Last year, Richmond’s arts and culture community offered the public more events than any other city in B.C., earning us the model status at the organization’s national level,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie in a news release.

“Again, this year, the number and range of events offered is sure to inspire residents of all ages and interests to explore their own creativity.”

Experiences range from visiting the home studios of local artists like Aphrodite Blagojevic and Jeanette Jarville to backstage tours of Gateway Theatre and wine and cheese tastings at Lulu Island Winery.

The Richmond Cultural Centre is the hub for Culture Days with demos and activities by the Richmond Potters Club, Textile Arts Guild of Richmond, Richmond Gem and Mineral Club, and Richmond Artists’ Life-Drawing Group.

The Richmond Public Library, museum, art gallery and arts centre are all taking part. The first public events in the newly opened rooftop garden will also happen during Culture Days with a talk by playwright, Lucia Frangione, and cooking workshops by chef Ian Lai.

There are many other events throughout the city that weekend, including the Community Arts Council of Richmond’s “Experience the Arts” at Lansdowne Centre and the inaugural Richmond Lantern Festival in Minoru Park.
