CULTURE DAYS at the Grand Coteau Heritage and Cultural Centre!

At the September 7 meeting of Shaunavon Town Council, Mayor Kyle Bennett signed a municipal proclamation declaring September 24 to October 24 as Culture Days | Fête de la culture in the Town of Shaunavon. Culture Days is a national celebration highlighting the importance of arts and culture in our communities.


An exciting part of the Grand Coteau Centre’s Culture Days events is the World Premiere of “EXPLORING CQ”, a photo exhibition by Cultural Intelligence facilitator Wilbur Sargunaraj. This compelling exhibition features a series of photographs taken by Wilbur over the last decade as he journeyed across the 10 cultural clusters to work and partner with various communities and organizations. The relationships and friendships that were formed by these cross-cultural interactions are the inspiration behind the photo exhibit.

Based on the work of the GLOBE leadership study and the Cultural Intelligence Center, “Exploring CQ” is a virtual journey designed to help people increase their CQ (cultural intelligence) by learning about the 10 cultural clusters and 10 cultural values.

The World Premiere event will take place in Shaunavon on October 1st and will run till October 29th with another special event planned at the Grand Coteau Centre Gallery on October 22. The Asia debut of “Exploring CQ” will take place in Bangalore, India, November 5 2021.

“Exploring CQ” is presented by the Grand Coteau Centre and CQ World Wide Consulting.
