#CultureDays is a national celebration of our incredible arts and culture across the country - this year's theme is: Creativity, the Arts, and Well-being! Participatory arts and culture events are popping up all over Canada and BC, and we've gathered a bunch of exciting free or low-cost events by our local orgs and businesses here in Rossland!
Culture Days is Friday, September 27th to Sunday, September 29th, though we've snuck a few cultural events in for Thursday too because Rossland is a busy place!!

November Speaker Series and AGM - November 29th

November Speaker Series and AGM - November 29th

My history teacher always told me that if we don’t study the past, we will never be able to understand the future. From a legacy perspective, we tell our stories for ourselves and as a gift to future generations.

Stories connect the past and present to the future. They can awaken future generations to their potential and they honour and give thanks to the people who helped create the communities we enjoy today.
