With the launch of the first project, Canada CODE, on May 4, Canadians everywhere were invited to submit images or words about their daily lives to contribute to a virtual scrapbook that reflects the stuff we Canadians are made of. Canada CODE tells the story of Canadian culture to the world. It brings the Cultural Olympiad to a whole new level and to Canadians through a whole new medium. The end result will be collaborative, remixed works of art that will be featured on jumbo public screens during the 2010 Winter Games.
The Cultural Olympiad Digital Edition (CODE) is a suite of programs best described by three words: Connect. Create. Collaborate. CODE creatively engages national and global audiences through digital technology. It’s a first for Canada and a first for an Olympic and Paralympic Games.
