The 2020 Culture Days festival will have Ontarians celebrating arts and culture online, at home, and in-person.

The series will focus on different communities throughout the province to showcase some of the exciting things happening during Culture Days from September 25 - October 25, 2020.

Do you think your community or group might be a good fit? Provide us with a few details about your upcoming celebrations to be considered. Apply here! Deadline is Monday, August 17th.

ArtScene Masthead

Over the years we have used artwork from various PRAC members as a background for ArtScene in the masthead. If you would like to showcase your design or photo let us know. The dimensions of ArtScene is 7"x2". You can create a rectangle design or choose a section of one of your pieces and we will place your image inside the word ArtScene. Or if you prefer to work with the outline we can send you a png. While we won't be printing ArtScene for a while, we still want print quality images (300 dpi, ppl or lpi).
Feel free to give to drop us a line if you have questions. We would love to see your work in the Masthead for an upcoming issue.
