About Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad

Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad is a celebration of the contemporary imagination. A series of three multi-disciplinary festivals that grows in scope and scale from 2008 through 2010, this is the first time an Olympic Winter Games has hosted a Cultural Olympiad two years before Games time.

From artistic collaborations that fuse contrasting perspectives to emerging talents re-inventing the voice of contemporary Canada, the Cultural Olympiad has something for everyone. Working in close partnership with the creative community, this amazing showcase of Canadian and international arts and popular culture will feature an unparalleled variety of music, dance, theatre, visual arts, film, outdoor spectaculars and digital media experiences, as remarkable and diverse as the planet itself.
