Culture Days 2015 with ‘Traditional India Series’ On September 25, 26, 27, TriCity India Heritage Arts & Culture Society celebrates the 6th Anniversary of Culture Days with a series of free events & activities in Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, Port Moody, Burnaby & Vancouver. TriCity India Heritage Arts & Culture Society along with our South Asian Radio sponsor, Spice Radio and all our exhibitors, artistes, musicians, dancers, volunteers & supportive community partners are very excited to be included amongst more than 7,500 free activities & events that are already registered to take place in over 825 communities across Canada as part of the 6th anniversary of Culture Days, taking place on September 25-27, 2015.
As a new community organization in Coquitlam, we are a group of prolific cultural leaders with a common value for the advancement of India’s culture. This presents the local communities with an extraordinary opportunity to share heritage arts and interact directly with the community in an engaging way. As a result, BC’s Indian Arts organizations can share the cultural creative process so members of the public are able to fully appreciate and understand Indian Arts. It is also a great way to meet new potential audience members/community members/supporters.
