October 1, 2016

Hands-on art activities at Culture Days

Culture Days is a collaborative Canada-wide volunteer movement to raise awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. Activities will be happening across the nation, so check out the Culture Days website to find activities in your area!

Culture Days in Surrey

The City of Surrey’s Arts & Heritage Services are heading to Guildford Town Centre and invite you to create, participate and enjoy local arts and heritage experiences. Free interactive activities and performances will be offered by the Surrey Art Gallery, Surrey Civic Theatres, and City of Surrey Heritage Services.

Drop by Centre Court in the mall where visual artists and instructors are on hand to help you make fun art-monster lanterns out of paper that you can use to light up the night at the Bear Creek Garden Light Festival in October.

Heritage Services’ own Re-enactors will entertain and delight as they share Surrey’s true stories. Play a medical Name Game with Doc Sinclair, and be on your best behaviour to avoid wearing Ms. Shannon’s dunce cap.

The Wild Moccasins Dancers—from different First Nations living in the Lower Mainland—will showcase some of the powwow styles like Women's Traditional, Jingle Dress, Fancy Shawl, and the Hoop Dance. They’ll share a bit of the history of the dances, and invite you to try some steps. Bhangra dancers will also be on scene entertaining you with their moves and inviting you to join in!
