We want to hear from you about Create Victoria. Public input has helped inform the Create Victoria draft plan which will guide the City of Victoria’s investment in arts and culture initiatives over the next five years.
Drop by CityStudio in September to learn more about what is being proposed and what the draft plan means to you … whether you are an artist, arts and culture organization, facility owner, resident or business.
For example, should the City develop a Creative Worker Attraction and Retention strategy or a Micro-Loan Grant program for creative entrepreneurs? How about linking artists with spaces, and creating a Cultural Infrastructure Fund for existing and new spaces to leverage and attract private and public donations?
Or should we introduce an arts incubator or hub, identify opportunities for enhancing arts education in schools, and animate public art through tours and workshops? These are just some of the actions proposed in the draft plan to increase prosperity within the creative and surrounding business community.
Take the opportunity to meet with City staff over coffee and cookies and let us know if we’ve got it right. Your feedback will inform the draft plan that is presented to City Council in October for consideration.
