Inspired by culture's role as the second pillar of the Olympic movement, the Cultural Olympiad is a celebration of contemporary imagination. It spans music, dance, theatre, visual arts, digital and new media arts, film, literature and spectacular outdoor events.

Cultural Olympiad 2010 will offer 60 days of exceptional programming including world premieres, commissioned words and one-of-a-kind  events, from January 22 through March 21, 2010. Running in the lead up to  and throughout the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, this extraordinary celebration will showcase more than 600 free and ticketed performances and exhibitions.

The Whistler Medals Plaza will feature Cultural Olympiad 2010 programming each night during the Victory Ceremonies.  Live entertainment with a selection of Canada's diverse music, arts and culture will transform the stage as we the celebrate athletes.
