CRD to expand arts in communities

Plan is to stimulate community awareness and engagement in the arts.

The Capital Regional District Arts Service is poised to begin a broad-based community engagement and consultation process to stimulate community awareness of the arts.

In its 2015 to 2017 Strategic Plan, the CRD said it will assist in increasing arts and culture tourism to economic development in the region, as well as enable sustainable growth of the arts and arts organizations in the region.

Artists, arts organizations, arts administrators, board members, volunteers, donors, corporate sponsors, the business and tourism communities and interested not-for-profit organizations are encouraged to participate in this initial stage of this project.

“Art is the fuel of vibrant communities,” Inga Petri, Lead Consultant, Strategic Moves. “To realize the potential of arts in the capital region, we have proposed a community engagement and consultation process that will offer several opportunities to everyone interested in the arts to make their voices heard.”

Four 2-hour pre-consultation sessions will be held at the CRD offices at 625 Fisgard St. in Victoria on June 23 and June 24, 2016.
