Building Our Arts Future Together Consultation

The CRD Arts Service conducted a community consultation in 2016 designed to strengthen the arts for all. The extensive public consultation process gained input from over 1,100 residents, resulting in an Implementation Plan for the Arts Service Strategic Plan.

The final public consultation, to review the draft Implementation Priorities and Action Plan, was held on November 3rd, 2016. Thank you to the 110 participants for working, reflecting, sharing, and sharpening our consultant's draft plan. All the summary reports of the various stages of the community engagement are available in the list below.

On March 29, 2017, the Arts Commission adopted the recommended actions in the Implementation Plan for Building Our #ArtsFuture Together.
