Miramichi Celebrates Culture Days

CD2014_JPG_EN_WEB_RGBWe are very excited to be included amongst more than 7,500 free activities that are already registered to take place in over 825 communities across Canada as part of the 5th anniversary of Culture Days, taking place on September 26-28, 2014. This showcase of our local culture presents us with an extraordinary opportunity to share our passion and interact directly with the community in an engaging way. As a result, we can share the creative process of our art so members of the public are able to fully appreciate and understand what is involved with our craft. It is also a great way to meet new potential supporters.

During the Culture Days weekend, we will open our doors and invite the public to participate in our craft.
