Working Models: Building Pathways Toward Your Culture Council

On November 24th, the newly incorporated Electric City Culture Council (EC3) is teaming up with ARTSPACE to present the first in a series of community meetings to establish Peterborough’s Culture Council and it’s membership.

Anyone who is ready to be part of a new phase of local cultural development in Peterborough should join us!

Peterborough’s Culture Council aspires to represent a broad definition of culture and this summit seeks to bring together a collective vision of what you want your Culture Council to be.

During the day you will hear from three presenters: Andrea Halwa from the London Arts Council, Karen Dolan from the Kingston Arts Council, and Jan Allen, a Kingston-based cultural advocate. The sessions are presented as models of best practice to help guide and inform your decision-making and consensus building efforts as we develop the EC3.

Round table discussions will provide an opportunity for participants to develop pointed questions and specific directions as to the formation of the Culture Council and how it will operate. This will be further developed at a follow-up meeting to be set in the near future.

We are thankful to ARTSPACE for hosting, and the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough for funding this event.”

The event will take place:

Saturday, November 24, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Trinity United Church Social Hall
360 Reid St
Peterborough, ON K9J 2V7
