Welcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.
This week’s challenge encourages you to:
Participate in Culture Days. Culture Days is a collaborative coast-to-coast-to-coast volunteer movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. Thousands of activity organizers are self-mobilizing at the grassroots level to present and coordinate free public activities that take place throughout the country this weekend. Kingston will be brimming with options for those seeking to try something new from Friday, September 26th-Sunday September 28th. This week we challenge you to join in the fun! Try your hand at conducting the Kingston Symphony, give karate a shot, talk to museum professionals about how to care for your paintings and documents, take a walking tour of Jewish Kingston, join in on an Irish jam session or learn to knit. The list of activities is long and varied so there’s something for everyone!
