News release

The Town of Milton is proud to again support an exciting slate of creative projects for Culture Days, a national celebration that highlights the importance of arts and culture in our communities.

Millions of people across Canada attend thousands of free Culture Days events in-person and online each fall. This year, Culture Days will run from Sept. 22 to Oct. 15, 2023.

The Town is collaborating with Arts Milton, which presents an award-winning arts and culture program during Culture Days. A variety of activities will be hosted at the FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton.

Activities for all to enjoy at FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton (1010 Main St. E., Milton)

Events this year include the Exclusively Inclusive public art project (gallery opening Wednesday, Sept. 27, 7-9 p.m.) that fearlessly delves into the themes of racism and hate, with the resolute aim of fostering positive change. The gallery will host more work by the remarkable artists who created the 10 murals at Hugh Lane. The evening will also involve an opportunity for dialogue and reflection.

FOACM will also host South Asian Mommies of Milton Hour (12 to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23) for a non-stop dance extravaganza. Brought to you by the fabulous South Asian Mommies of Milton (SAMM), the event will celebrate South Asia's vibrant cultures and traditions through mesmerizing dance performances that will dazzle you.

Halton named 2023 Culture Days festival hub

Hubs are local partners that act as a community lead for the festival. From regional galleries to your local culture department, these expert organizations are a friendly face during Culture Days. Learn more on the Halton Culture Days hub page.

A Place I Call Home

With more displaced people worldwide, artist Faisal Anwar invites submissions for his new interactive artwork that reflects on the meaning of “home.” Anyone can post a photo on Instagram and tag it with #APlaceICallHomeHalton. The tagged photo will be added to a large-scale installation of photographs in motion and will be projected in various locations across Halton for Culture Days. Milton will showcase the event on its digital display in the FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton on September 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
