Culture Days 2018 | September 28, 29, 30  

Millions of Canadians engage in thousands of free activities and performances hosted by artists, cultural organizations, and municipalities in communities across Canada. From Nunavut to New Brunswick, and from British Columbia to Baffin Island – and all points in between – we share all the inspiration, artistry, creativity and expression that reflects the mosaic of Canadian culture.


Interested in being a volunteer with the Tett Centre for Creativity & Learning? Are you enthusiastic about the arts and looking for a way to be more integrated and involved in the Kingston arts community? Are you looking to expand your resume, meet new people, or fulfill your 40 hours of community service hours to graduate? We invite you to join our friendly and dedicated team!


We are thrilled to be relaunching our popular Tett Presents: PA Days this 2018/19. We are currently seeking artists, art educators and volunteers to join this exciting, engaging and educational visual arts program. Students can look forward to a full day of art-making and exploring new mediums, while working alongside local artists, touring the Tett Centre, and immersing themselves in the Tett’s lively waterfront arts hub.

Please note, instructors must have a valid CPIC, and previous teaching experience. Contact Danielle at arts@tettcentre.org for program details and an application. PA dates include: September 28th, October 26th, November 16th, December 7th, February 1st, April 5th and May 17th. Thank you for your interest!
