CIT continues an involvement in 2020 Culture Night

08 September, 2020



Culture Night will happen again this year, although it will be a little different compared to previous years.

With the various restrictions, organisations and artists have had to adapt quickly, embracing virtual, online and outdoor formats to share their activities. Creativity always wins out and there will be some great projects to experience!

This is truly a night to support artists, arts and cultural organisations, and venues and how they have incorporated the current restrictions to continue sharing arts & culture. 

Remember Arts and Culture events happen 365 days a year and need to be supported, viewed, and funded to keep them alive!
