Oregon Day of Culture is Thursday, October 8, with events from October 1 - 8
included in the celebration.
The website for Oregon Day of Culture, www.oregondayofculture.org
<http://www.oregondayofculture.org> , is nearing completion.  It will launch
Wednesday, September 16 and will include a searchable database to which you
can post any of your events, taking place from October 1 ­ 8, 2009.
You will receive another email on Wednesday confirming that registration is
officially open.  You will have until Friday, September 25 to post your
Oregon Day of Culture events.  Registration will close at end of day on
Friday, September 25.
The event registration form is easy and quick to complete.  It will allow
you to post multiple events, to select a discipline and type of event.  It
will include designations for public and private events.  So that means you
can post organizational and community cultural events that are open to the
public as well as private events, such as a book club meeting, drumming
class, a cultural volunteer project, or an Oregon Day of Culture house
The website will include a toolkit with materials to help you promote your
participation in Oregon Day of Culture.
Event coordinator Kirk Mouser is the lead contact for Oregon Day of Culture
events but he cannot post your events for you.  Please do not send event
information to him, or to the Cultural Trust.
However, if you have ideas about speaking engagements, banner placement,
media interviews or other ways to get the word out about Oregon Day of
Culture, please contact him at:

The Cultural Trust will drive Oregonians to www.oregondayofculture.org with
publicity and promotion, advertising, speaking engagements and a social
