|As a proud supporter of Culture Days, the City of Port Moody is hosting its first-ever Day of Arts celebration on Saturday, September 26 from 12 noon to 5pm at the Port Moody Civic Centre, 100 Newport Drive. This afternoon event will showcase visual artists, musicians and performers, plus samples of tasty food and beverages!
Artist Sylvie Roussel-Janssens will be on-site to create a piece of community art! Be a part of the project and decorate a fabric square with letters or symbols related to the theme of art and culture. Sylvie will then suspend your creation on a metal grid at City Hall. Stop by the traffic circle in front of City Hall between 12-5pm and make your mark!
The Port Moody Public Library invites you to experience van Gogh’s Starry Night in the middle of the day. Stop by between 1-3pm on September 26 and a wondrous art installation will transport you to a bustling Parisian street at night. Drop in to their French café for a warming cup of tea and discover your new favorite book. Can you hear accordion music??
What is Culture Days?
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.
Every year, on the Culture Days weekend, thousands of artists, individuals, organizations and communities offer free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate “behind the scenes,” to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, and designers at work. Go to www.culturedays.ca for events happening across Canada!

What we did in 2014: In 2014, the City hosted a wide range of free cultural experiences including a display of how public art comes to be in Port Moody, a subversive collection of banned books at the Port Moody Public Library, a behind-the-scenes tour of Inlet Theatre, an interactive public art piece, and the onsite filming of a 1 minute movie titled Company Policy, by Leo Award-winning filmmaker, and founder of The Young Actors Project, Robert Randall.
