Call for Participation (Charlottetown): Apply to be Invited Guest at The Canadian Arts Summit – Business for the Arts & Banff Centre

Business for the ArtsATTENTION Next Gen Arts and Culture Leaders!

Join the leadership of Canada’s largest arts institutions for a stimulating weekend of networking, professional development and ideas exchange at the 20th Annual Canadian Arts Summit, CultureNEXT, May 12-14, 2017 at the Confederation Centre for the Art in Charlottetown, PEI.

From May 12-14, 2017, on the occasion of Canada’s 150th anniversary, the 20th annual Canadian Arts Summit CultureNEXT will bring together 150 extraordinary arts leaders from across the country to imagine the future of Canada’s creative life. As Canada looks forward to the next 50 years, issues around cultural diversity and inclusion, evolving digital technologies, cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary intersections, and reconciliation with our Indigenous people are emerging as major drivers of cultural transformation.

If you’re inspired to contribute to this conversation alongside Canada’s top institutional leaders, we encourage you to tell us why. Through a simple online application process a small group of extraordinary individuals will be selected to attend the upcoming Summit in person as an invited guest! Invited Summit guests will have the opportunity to participate in plenary sessions, share perspectives during round table discussions and exchange ideas on current issues with Summit members, as well as enjoy networking opportunities with important leaders in the arts, culture and business sectors. Attendees will be chosen through a formal selection process led by members of the CAS Steering Committee.

Interested participants who wish to attend the Arts Summit should submit a brief letter of interest outlining the following:

  • Your professional background.
  • A description of how your participation would enrich the CAS discussions around leadership.
  • A description of how you would benefit from this experience as a current or emerging leader.

Deadline to apply: Monday, January 16th, 2017.
Invitations to selected individuals will be made no later than Monday February 13th, 2017.

Please address your letter of interest to:
