The NFB is proud to be a major collaborator of Canada CODE, a grassroots digital collection of text and photos by Canadians about their daily lives and experiences. It is the first of several projects from Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad's digital edition, CODE. The Cultural Olympiad is a three-year series of multidisciplinary festivals of arts, popular culture and digital programs.
 
A number of noteworthy Canadians have already contributed to the Web site, including Giller Prize winner Joseph Boyden, Vancouver's Evelyn Lau and Nicole Brossard of Montreal.  A total of 49 Canadian writers will help launch the site.
 
Anyone with access to the Internet can contribute to, or simply explore, the Canada CODE Web site. Canada CODE is a constantly morphing online portrait of contemporary Canada created by Canadians for the entire world to see. A selection of the best content will be presented on public screens in Vancouver and Whistler for the thousands of spectators and athletes visiting during the Games.
 
"This eclectic collection of words and photos submitted by anyone who wants to share is meant to reflect the stuff that we as Canadians are made of. It's who we are. It's the things we do every day. It's the words we use to describe ourselves and our communities," explained Burke Taylor, VANOC (Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games) Vice-President, Culture and Celebrations.
