The Post at Nolan Hill: Alberta Culture Expo Events in Your Area

Alberta Culture Days began in 2008 as Alberta Arts Day, a one-day event to recognize the value of Alberta’s arts and cultural communities. There were 100 events held in 30 communities across the province, and a flagship celebration at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Calgary. Since then, it has expanded into a vibrant, three-day, province wide celebration that has helped inspire the creation of Culture Days – a pan-Canadian movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. http://culture.alberta.ca/culturedays/default.aspx

•Stone Poets at the Gallery -Intimate auditory experience with Scott MacKay hosting while Chris Gheran is away on tour. Out of Abandon Paris (rock/reggae) and The Jardines (roots-country/pop), The Stone Poets emerge with a blend of raw folk, darker and edgier than expected.
