Starting this month, the City’s Culture Division, guided by the Arts, Culture and Heritage Steering Committee, will begin meeting with residents and art groups to create a new Culture Master Plan.
“The Culture Master Plan will establish strategic direction and identify specific actions that will grow and evolve Mississauga’s arts and culture scene to reflect the emerging global City that we’re becoming” said Paul Damaso, Director, Culture Division, City of Mississauga.
The first Culture Master Plan was approved by Council in 2009 and provided recommendations to create a division focused on art, culture and heritage. The new plan will provide the City with a 10-year plan that will grow and strengthen arts, culture and heritage in Mississauga.
“Listening to residents and understanding more about what they think culture in Mississauga can be is vital to the success of this project,” added Damaso. “This project gives the community the chance to be heard so we are encouraging residents to be bold and let their voices be heard.”
The Culture Division will host focus group meetings with key stakeholders in January and two in-person public meetings and one digital meeting in February. Continue reading What Can Culture Be? The City is Looking to Residents for the Answer
