Life Cycles is developing a database in consultation with a four-person Arts and Cultural Steering committee. The role of the Mapping Our Arts and Cultural Resources Steering committee is to provide advice to the mapping project. Committee members include James Lam, Manager, CRD Arts Development; Helen Marzolf, Director at Open Space Arts Society; Paul Scrivener, Executive Director of the Community Arts Council; and Scott Walker, Coordinator of the Professional Arts Alliance of Greater Victoria. In December, Life Cycles began meeting with representatives from Victoria's arts and cultural community, including music, visual arts, theatre/performing arts, dance, film/video, and literary sectors. Consultation will be completed by mid-March 2010. In addition to one-on-one meetings, an online questionnaire was developed as a convenient way for arts and cultural organizations to provide input. The information collected will form part of the Victoria Arts Scan inventory.
