Prescott and Russell celebrates Culture Days!
Vankleek Hill — Culture Days 2022 is fast approaching and the Prescott-Russell Arts Council invites you to proudly celebrate our regional culture and heritage. This annual national celebration of arts, culture and heritage takes place from September 23rd to October 16th and allows the public to participate free of charge in a full program of events and activities.
This year, the Prescott-Russell Arts Council is proud to collaborate with Ontario Culture Days as the Regional Hub representing the Prescott and Russell region. CAPRAC will serve as an anchor and expert organization for organizers and participants to connect with during the festival. This partnership opportunity comes with increased visibility, targeted public relations, marketing tools, support for artistic programming and more.
"It is a great honour to represent the art, culture and heritage of our beautiful region on a provincial level," said Margo Malboeuf, CAPRAC's Lead Coordinator. "We invite everyone to come and enjoy our events and activities and discover for themselves the many talented local artists, creators and partners involved!" CAPRAC acknowledges the generous support of Ontario Culture Days and is very grateful.
