Culture Days Ottawa

Culture Days: Vintage Social Media – September 27 and 28 from 10 am to 4 pm

Experience the days of radio and movie magic! In the days before television, iPads, and texting, the family radio and the weekly movie screening were the social media of the day. Everyone gathered around radio sets in family homes to listen to weekly broadcasts of their favourite shows like Little Orphan Annie. Have fun as a modern family learning how to build a radio set transmitter, listening to authentic historic radio broadcasts, watching silent films, and having fun with our film crew activity to learn about gaffers, grips, sound artists, producers, and directors. If you have a future Steven Spielberg at home, this is the event for you! On Sunday, local producers and artisans from the Cumberland Farmers’ Market will be selling their goods - locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, meats, pastries, alongside artisanal products – at their first Harvest Market.

Cost: Free admission
