Dialogue Sessions: Thank You and Next Steps
- Posted April 20th, 2012
Well that was a fun week! Calgary Arts Development staff and board members welcomed close to 100 artists, administrators, board members and online responders in our Current State of the Arts Dialogue Sessions that wrapped up Tuesday. Follow our blog posts for observations from Calgary Arts Development staff about the sessions.
These conversations are phase one of a three-phase process that will include a public consultation and vision-setting process this summer, leading to the development of a long-term strategic plan for the development of the arts in Calgary. This process is described in our most recent Strategic Plan. Follow hashtag #yycArtsPlan on twitter for continued updates as well.
Our next immediate step is to incorporate your feedback from the Dialogue Sessions into our Current State of the Arts report to City Council in May. We are looking forward to sharing a summary with you in our Report to the Community on May 28. Thank you to everyone who took the time to talk with us, it is an exciting time to refresh our vision for the future of the arts in Calgary.
Finally, if you haven't had a chance to be in the room, there is still time to have your say. We are keeping our online questions open until Friday, April 20 and you can respond to the discussion questions online.
