This is our moment to shape the future of culture in Ottawa. The Ottawa Cultural Alliance has been asked to facilitate the creation of a new community-driven Cultural Roadmap as we plan for 2019 – 2022. The new Cultural Roadmap and its associated research findings and recommendations will recommend the strategy and priorities for Ottawa’s cultural sector* for 2019 and beyond. The results are also intended to inform the newly elected Ottawa City Council’s planning and decision-making for the next four-year period.
Independent experts are providing research and data on the cultural sector and consulting the community. A Cultural Summit was held in mid-January to facilitate community dialogue on key issues and strategic priorities to be included in the New Cultural Roadmap for 2019-2022.
To stay informed and have a say, join the consultation mailing list.
* “Cultural sector” refers to organizations, artists and workers in the arts, festival, heritage and cultural fields, inclusive of people from a diversity of ancestries, abilities, ages, countries of origin, cultures, genders, incomes, languages, races and sexual orientations.
The Ottawa Cultural Alliance gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the City of Ottawa for this study.
