Upcoming Culture Days Event Launches In Saint John

Saint Johners can take part in a celebration of the arts happening here, around the province and across the country later this month.  Last year's Culture Days featured over 80 events and organizers are hoping the 2011 event will exceed that.  Co-chair Susan Chalmers-Gauvin says culture has an enormous social and economic impact.
She says in some ways it's the best kept secret with its benefits for health and education adding it's the heart of our communities.
Artist Freeman Patterson tells CHSJ News the impact of the arts is vast and generally unrecognized.  He says people recognize the oil industry along with aquaculture and agriculture but, collectively arts and culture jobs employ more people.
There is still time to add your event to Culture Days, for more info click here
