2018 Days of Culture Oct. 1-8

Days of Culture 2018 will showcase the diverse ways Oregonians experience culture with an Oct. 1-8 social media campaign inviting individuals to share snapshots and videos of their cultural experiences with hashtag #ORCulture. The winning image will serve as the inspiration for an original poem by Oregon Poet Laureate Kim Stafford<https://culturaltrust.org/oregon-poet-laureate> and be used as a lead image and mantra for the Cultural Trust's 2018 fundraising campaign. The winner will receive an autographed poem framed with his or her photo.

All who post images on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #ORCulture will be entered to win. The winner will be randomly selected on Tuesday, Oct. 9.
