2029: Building Edmonton’s Community Plan for Arts & Heritage – Additional engagement sessions added!
The Edmonton Arts Council, on behalf of the City of Edmonton, is preparing Edmonton’s next comprehensive 10-year Arts and Heritage Plan. Along with project partners the Edmonton Heritage Council, the City of Edmonton, and Arts Habitat Edmonton, work is underway to create a new 10-year Arts & Heritage Plan that will be unique to Edmonton, and will provide strong recommendations that will guide and strengthen the City’s planning, investment, and ongoing development of the arts and heritage sectors.
To create a plan that is truly unique to our city, we want to know your fondest culture memories; the impact of the arts and heritage in your community, on your networks or for your cause; and your aspirations for the future of the arts and heritage sectors in Edmonton.
How can you participate in the creation of the new plan?
We are hosting a suite of in-depth facilitated conversations for arts and heritage organizations, artists, collectives, museums, and others. These facilitated sessions are two hours in length, and will provide an opportunity for members of the arts and heritage sectors to engage in focused discussion, and share their vision for the future of the arts and heritage landscapes.
