It's your last chance to register to join the cultural community this Friday, June 20 at the Roundhouse and take part in the work of developing a cultural policy framework for all of British Columbia.
Through a series of Arts Summits beginning in 2009 the Alliance identified a desire, across cultural disciplines and sectors, for a conversation, followed by action, about a comprehensive cultural policy for our province. Last June at Arts Summit 2013 we began that conversation and commenced the ongoing process we are calling BC Creative Convergence. Since then, committee and Community Cultural Roundtable discussions have continued, and we have begun plans for further engagement across BC.
We will return to Arts Summit 2014 with a progress report on the work done so far on a draft policy framework and province-wide consultations. We'll hear from speakers who can help to inform our process, and we will seek to identify topics that require more attention and ways of developing wider community engagement in the year ahead. Please join the conversation.
