Cloudscape Culture Days Open House on September 27

Culture Days

Culture Days raises the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. Hundreds of thousands of artists, cultural workers, organizations, and volunteers across the country self-mobilize to host free participatory public activities that take place in hundreds of cities and towns throughout the country over the last weekend of September each year. The fifth annual Culture Days weekend will take place September 26, 27 and 28, 2014, and will feature thousands of free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate.

As part of this event, on September 27, we’ll be opening the doors of our studio from 2:00 to 4:00 for an open house event. Our president, Jeff Ellis, will be performing demonstration on digital inking and colouring, various studio members will be working on projects and chatting with visitors, and Cloudscape Comics as a whole will be hosting comic jams and games of Exquisite Corpses.

If you’ve ever been interested in Cloudscape and comics, this is THE day to check us out!
