Culture Days - Event Registration/HUB Sponsorship Delay
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Culture Days national and provincial partners have decided to temporarily postpone the launch of Culture Days event registration, previously scheduled for early May 2020. All partners are currently taking the time to plan for every possible scenario for the Culture Days 2020 weekend taking place September 25, 26 & 27, 2020.
SaskCulture has also decided to hold off opening its Culture Days Hub sponsorship application until the situation is better understood and whether the sponsorship priorities will be impacted. This will eliminate the need for applicants to have to resubmit an application should the criteria need to be reviewed. Other sponsorship options will be evaluated to determine if, and when, they might better support communities accessing new cultural programs.
Contingency planning will continue through the spring, and Culture Days partners will keep everyone updated on timelines including event registration, and the availability of SaskCulture’s Hub Culture Days Hub Sponsorship through our various social media channels and our respective websites.
All partners are committed to finding creative and helpful solutions for organizers to continue to reach audiences through the Culture Days platforms, and remain hopeful that the annual Culture Days weekend will continue to bring millions of Canadians together through participatory arts and culture experiences. This year especially, the cross-country celebration of arts, culture, and creativity will carry special significance by connecting communities and people to the vital work of artists, creators, museums, storytellers, and performers.
