Life + Learning

Cassidy, Queen's Square | October 1, 2021

Spooky season is upon us, and with it, a new month of programs, learning and fun at Idea Exchange. This month we are featuring two different program series: Culture Days and Cambridge Celebration of Women, which feature programs, lectures and events for all ages.


Culture Days is a national celebration of arts and culture. At the end of each September, millions of people attend thousands of participatory arts and culture events across the country. Culture Days programs invite the public to get hands-on and behind-the-scenes to highlight the importance of arts and culture in our communities.

Join us this October as we celebrate Person’s Day and continue to advocate for all the vibrant, vital contributions that womxn, two-spirit, non-binary and female identifying people bring to our communities with our Celebration of Women events.
