Since 1987, we have been working collaboratively to ensure an inclusive and community-minded city, rich with arts and creativity where:
  • you can engage with and be inspired by a diverse range of arts across the region
  • local arts professionals can have successful careers,
  • arts organizations bring together our neighbourhoods and communities, and,
  • the arts are valued as essential to our well-being.
