Burlington PAC seeks postcard stories

The Burlington Performing Arts Centre (BPAC) recently launched a deltiological initiative, “A Postcard Story,” inviting people to submit a story or poem tying into the theme of “Unexpected Intersections.”

The call for postcard stories is part of Culture Days, an annual, nationwide celebration of arts and culture initiated by the Canadian Arts Summit in 2010. People are encouraged to send a postcard story with a maximum of 100 words highlighting “memories and moments from a special place or from previous Culture Days weekends,” according to organizers.

“What are some of the unexpected intersections you have faced, or are currently facing?”

The submission deadline is Sept. 28 at 11:59 p.m., and some stories might be chosen to be displayed on one of BPAC’s outdoor poster boxes.

To submit a postcard story or read some of the entries, visit burlingtonpac.ca/community/culture-days.


For the sake of modern postal history, CSN also encourages people to submit a story on a physical postcard.

For physical submissions, send your postcard – complete with a 100-word story – to:

Heather Cassels
Burlington Performing Arts Centre
440 Locust St.
Burlington, ON  L7S 1T7.
