We had ourselves a little urban ramble this weekend – through the CBC studios on Sparks Street.  A studio tour, sidewalk displays and live entertainment… and a chance to put faces to the voices we hear every day coming through the radio. 

It was all part of “Culture Days“, a Canada-wide event with “Thousands of free cultural things for you to do, make, paint, sculpt, act, sing, dance, write, and learn”. In Ottawa alone there were well over a hundred visual & performing arts classes of all descriptions, tours and talks, festivals and performances… something for everyone.  This was the first year of what is being billed as an annual event, so definitely worth keeping an eye out for this, this time next year.
