Culture Days Manitoba is a collaborative pan-Canadian volunteer movement to raise awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. The 9th annual Culture Days weekend is September 28, 29 and 30, 2018 and will feature thousands of free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate “behind-the-scenes,” to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, designers and other creative people in their communities.
Nuit Blanche Winnipeg is a free all-night exploration and celebration of contemporary art that takes place every Saturday of the Culture Days weekend from dusk to dawn. Held annually since 2010, all events and exhibits are spread across three main zones of activity: St. Boniface, Downtown and the Exchange District. Nuit Blanche Winnipeg is designed to encourage involvement in the arts by all. Nuit Blanche Winnipeg 2018 will take place on Saturday, September 29. Visit nuitblanchewinnipeg.ca for a complete list of events and exhibits.
