The County of Brant is looking for feedback from community members and professionals to help shape the future of Arts, Culture and Heritage in Brant. Several initiatives have been planned to reach those throughout the communities.
“We are excited to be launching the engagement portion of the Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy,” said Zach Gable, Director of Economic Development and Tourism. “Community feedback is imperative to the success of the strategy, and we hope that through a number of activities planned, we can reach a wide range of both professionals and community members interested in sharing their thoughts on arts, culture and heritage in the County of Brant.”
Residents are invited to visit the EngageBrant website at www.EngageBrant.ca/Culture to learn more about the strategy and give their feedback through an online survey and by sharing their ideas, paper copies of the survey are also available at County of Brant Customer Service Offices. A drop-in, open house is also planned for Wednesday, September 20, 2023, at the Wincey Mills Market from 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm. Public engagement for the strategy closes on September 24, 2023.
“We invite the community to come out to the Wincey Mills Market on September 20 and share your vision for Brant,” said Kayla Cicman, Arts, Culture and Heritage Officer. “Meet with other local creatives, and County staff, enjoy live music, as well as delicious treats.”
County of Brant staff will also be present at a number of events throughout the summer and will ask residents to share their thoughts on community boards. Look for staff at Movie Nights, Music in the Parks, and more.
The need for an Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy stemmed from the County of Brant’s current Strategic Plan which includes creating and sustaining opportunities for residents to be actively engaged in recreational, social and community activities.
