We can each find our own sense of belonging and anchors we can identify with among the 99 treasures of the Latvian Culture Canon. Considering these 99 treasures listed, we can each find at least 3, 5 or 10 features that we definitely agree should be included in the Culture Canon. Consequently, this Canon, along with our individual and diverse feelings and personal canons, is the point of contact that brings us together.
By working with the treasures in the Canon at schools, libraries, interest groups and a variety of events, we will expand our knowledge and senses about what is of value in Latvia and obtain a fresh view of the diversity, size and depth of Latvia’s culture.
We invite you to find out about the Latvian Culture Canon – come along to the National Library of Latvia (Gaismas pils – Castle of Light) to play a Treasure Hunt Game about Latvia’s cultural treasures! Come to creative workshops at schools and libraries! Participate in the Culture Canon Competition organised by the Latvian Academy of Culture! Peek into the Latvian School Bag! Or – suggest an achievement you think has been missed, which should have been included in the Latvian Culture Canon!
