Call for Artists: Alberta Culture Days in Wood Buffalo

Participate & Celebrate: Sept. 1 – 30, 2021

Project Description

The Wood Buffalo Alberta Culture Days planning committee is seeking individuals and organizations to help organize and host fun, family-friendly events that feature the region’s diverse culture. The events and activities can take place online, as well as in-person, given they adhere to COVID-19 public health measures.

“Registering early provides the Wood Buffalo Alberta Culture Days planning committee with a greater ability to prepare and plan for the coming year’s events. We are looking for local artists, performers, event hosts and venue operators to help us celebrate arts and culture in our region.”

– Jessica Barry, Coordinator with RMWB
