Register now to join the cultural community on Friday, June 20 for Arts Summit 2014 and take part in the work of developing a cultural policy framework for all of British Columbia.
The morning will feature presentations by Michael Davis of BoardVoice on the similar work being done on provincial social policy, reports on the recent Where Next BC gathering and the ArtsBC conference, and an update from Bob D’Eith of Music BC on the creative industries’ experiences since last year’s launch of Creative BC.
The main order of business will be the presentation of the BC Cultural Convergence draft cultural policy framework.
There will be plenty of opportunities at this one-day Summit for you to share your views, critique the draft framework, and send the BC Convergence team back to the drawing board to incorporate your ideas in the final document.
We will also be fine-tuning our engagement strategies for the coming months as we continue the BC Creative Convergence roundtables in communities throughout BC, seeking further input into the final framework document.
Breakout sessions will be facilitated by Dialogue Leaders representing most of our sectors and disciplines and many of our province’s regions. These will include arts consultant Dawn Brennan, Peter Sandmark of ProArt Victoria; Linda LaFleur of the Columbia Basin Trust; Joanna Maratta of the BC Touring Council; and Judy Robertson of Metro Vancouver.
Check-in opens at 8 a.m., Summit proceedings commence at 9 a.m, wrap-up at 4:30 p.m. Lunch and refreshments are included with registration.
