CouncilBrant Council approves Arts and Culture strategy

County of Brant Council unanimously approved its Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy during their regular meeting on Tuesday, March 26, 2024.

“We are thrilled to be moving forward with the Strategy,” said David Bailey, Mayor for the County of Brant. “The Strategy is designed to build and foster a culture in the County of Brant where people feel connected and have a sense of pride for the local arts, culture and heritage found in their own community.”

Following Council direction, County of Brant staff engaged with ERA Architects in May 2023 to help craft the new strategy. The Strategy was informed by research and community engagement with County of Brant staff, Council, community members and Indigenous partners, which resulted in a plan that is responsive to the unique needs of the County of Brant.

The Strategy presents Vision, Objectives and Actions to guide the County of Brant’s efforts to conserve, support and promote local arts, culture and heritage over the next ten years. The timeline prioritizes foundational changes, and phases larger projects that may require the allocation of staff and financial resources in the future

“The Strategy serves as a ten-year plan to guide the County’s support of arts, culture and heritage,” said Kayla Cicman, Arts, Culture and Heritage Officer for the County of Brant. “It features six objectives and 42 actions, each with a recommended timeline ranging from short term of one to three years, medium term of four to six years and long term of seven to ten years. Also highlighted through the Strategy are the economic and social benefits of culture which are well-recognized worldwide and represent an emerging economic driver in Brant.

Ultimately, the Strategy establishes the vision and support for culture in the County; it aligns aspirations and resources around key goals, objectives and actions providing a roadmap that will enable the County to realize this vision in a fiscally responsible way.

This plan for active leadership and support will support growth in this vibrant sector for years to come.
