The Chilliwack Cultural Centre is bursting at the seams as it hosts the annual Cultural Collaboration on Sept. 28 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Come to the Centre and explore your inner artist. New this year is a talent showcase featuring everything from dance to music to theatre. Watch as incredible local talents show off their skills. Studio doors will be thrown open so you can see and even try some of the fun activities happening here.
You can even take a peek backstage in the Cultural Centre. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sit in the Green Room or in front of the mirror lights before a performance? Open to the public for Cultural Collaboration only, visitors can take centre stage in the main theatre, see where the performers prepare and get a feel for what goes on behind the scenes before the shows.
Join local artists and artisans in the Artist Village as they unravel the mysteries of their work. Watch potters, musicians and crafters demonstrate the pure joy of creativity in the Cultural Centre's studios and see some of the results from new classes in a student art show in Odlum Brown Studio. Try your own hand at drawing, pluck the strings of the popular Ukulele Club or beat your own drum in the drum circle.
Grab a passport for the kids to get stamped as you explore this amazing facility. Learn about classes now offered in the Arts & Craft Studios and even sign up right away at the centre box office. You can even take home some music from the academy's music sale upstairs to get you started on your own musical journey.
This is a fun-filled event for the whole family, aimed at informing the community about all the incredible opportunities in the city to get creative.
