The Municipality of North Grenville’s Arts and Culture Advisory Committee (ACAC) is excited to announce the launch of North Grenville’s arts and culture survey, open from September 20 to October 9, 2023.
“We invite everyone to take a moment to complete this survey. Feedback will provide insight into how residents view arts and culture opportunities in North Grenville, such as identifying what we are doing well and how we can better support the arts and culture community,” highlighted Mayor Nancy Peckford.
The survey can be found on the website at www.northgrenville.ca/arts.
“Culture and the arts are woven into the fabric of our community. They inspire and enrich the lives of residents and boost North Grenville’s appeal to businesses looking to establish themselves in the area. We look forward to hearing how we can continue to foster a strong arts and culture community,” emphasized Deputy Mayor John Barclay and Co-Chair of the Arts and Culture Advisory Committee.
Community Consultation – October 21, 2023
In addition to the survey, residents are invited to attend a community consultation session facilitated by Réseau SPARC Network on Saturday October 21, 2023 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. This consultation session aims to bring together residents, stakeholders, and creators to help inform how we can better support arts and culture in North Grenville.
If you are interested in attending this free community consultation, please register online at www.northgrenville.ca/arts.
“The ACAC can’t wait to hear what residents think about arts and culture in North Grenville. The survey and community consultation results will act as a crucial guide in the development of the ACAC committee work plan, allowing us to make informed recommendations to Council that will improve the creation of, and access to, arts and culture in NG,” said Arts and Culture Advisory Committee Co-Chair Lisa Poushinsky.
