Alberta Culture Days Celebration 2021, September 23rd - 25th
We are a firm believer in our communities. Ethnik Festivals Association in collaboration with other Canadian community organizations come together from time to time for different collaborative works.
Art and Culture serves so superbly as a universal language, a means toward understanding the history, culture, and values of other peoples. To us, it’s a creative and tangible force, a dynamic and ever-evolving cultural substance that is part of our everyday life. It's freely available for us to share, enjoy, and celebrated because sharing Art can create opportunities that will improve the quality of life and wellness of members of our society.
We believe in the Canadian dream and as such see this land as a place where every member of our society is given the opportunity and platform to freely live, love, learn and earn, through the platform of Art and Culture. This what we live for and do as a Canadian community organization.
With support from individuals and corporate organizations, we are able to promote culturally and diverse community-oriented programs that foster unity and peaceful co-existence within Canadian society.
An example of such collaboration is during Alberta Culture Days where we present stories that capture the essence of our cultural heritage through different layers of artistic expressions
The 2021 Alberta Culture Days will be a unique celebration. Happening across all cities in Alberta Province in the month of September, our organization in collaboration with Calgary community members is putting forward a community event that is adaptable for an online presentation called "A Cultural Trilogy".
This is a fictional cultural expression written by Lanre Ajayi, Artistic and Creative Director, Ethnik Festivals with supports from other local writers within our community. This story is about women’s empowerment and cultural advancement taking a clue from folktales from Afro-Canadian perspectives with relevance to our modern-day cultural trends.Beyond our community collaborative presentations, we are often reminded of the need to give back to our community individual members, and organizations who have been supporting us in all of our endeavors.
Our quarterly giving-platform event caters to the needs of both local art education centers and individuals within the art sector through donations of needed art materials to empower artists to express their voice, promote leadership in our communities and give back to the youth in communities in support of their dreams.
