Burlington Culture Days – ‘RE:emergence’ Needs Artists & Performers

Burlington Culture Days 2022

*Please see below a news release issued by the City of Burlington.

Burlington, Ont. — Aug. 3, 2022 — The City of Burlington is calling for local artists, cultural professionals and creative organizations to host free, interactive in-person or online events and activities during the 13th annual Culture Days.

Culture Days will take place from Sept. 23-Oct. 16, 2022. This year, it is extending beyond its traditional weekend format to a more inclusive and interactive three-week schedule of programs and events.

Canada is ready for a re-emergence of arts and culture and so is Culture Days. As the world navigates to past norms and designs new solutions for everyday life, arts, culture, and expression play a vital role in a healthy, thriving society.

This year’s theme ‘RE: emergence’, explores new ideas and innovation in arts and culture while committing to building tangible change in the sector and society. As we learn to live with COVID-19, the Ontario Culture Days Festival will offer a hybrid of in-person events as well as digital and self-guided programming. Organizers must make sure they are following any municipal, regional, provincial and public health guidelines in their area. Ontario Culture Days has created resource pages for organizers and ways to discover arts and culture across Ontario.

If you would like to host a Culture Days event, register your event online with Culture Days at  For more information about participating in Culture Days, contact Adam Belovari at 905-335-7600, ext. 7335 or by Sept 3.

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.


A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
