Stone Soup refers to the fable in which hungry travellers start a soup with a pot of water and a stone, inviting the curiosity of local villagers. One by one villagers begin to offer ingredients to add to the mix, creating a delicious soup for the whole village to enjoy together.
Culture Days is a collaborative, Canada-wide volunteer movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation, and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. Now in its eighth year, Culture Days is the country’s largest public participation campaign in the arts. This year’s celebrations will take place from Sept. 29-Oct.1, inviting the public behind the scenes to discover the world of creative people in their community. Last year, 658 Culture Days activities were offered in 60 communities across B.C.
