Culture Days

UNEXPECTED INTERSECTIONS

Our 2020 theme inspires creative collaborations and discovery

Culture Days is a national celebration of arts and culture. Millions of people attend thousands of participatory arts and culture events across the country. Culture Days programs invite the public to get hands-on and behind-the-scenes to highlight the importance of arts and culture in our communities.

This year our Kaleidoscope Arts Festival was our focus where we took the art out of the park and into the community with four physically-distanced small group programs at four locations! Programs were supported by community arts partners: Coquitlam Public Library and Stories on Wheels; Coquitlam Heritage Society; Place des Arts; and J Peachy Gallery and the Hoy/Scott Watershed Society. 

Our programs are now complete, but please enjoy the video below.

Community Intersections – View Journey of Resilience

The global pandemic altered our everyday lives. Communities, businesses, neighbours and families were put to the unprecedented challenge of daily perseverance and adaptation. 

This is a visual and reflective story by artist Candelario Andrade, commemorating Coquitlam’s journey of hope, connection and resilience in 2020.  [Runtime: 15 minutes]
