Who We Are and What We Do
The Electric City Culture Council (EC3) is a new, not-for-profit service organization serving the arts, culture and heritage (ACH) sector in Peterborough and the surrounding region. Our mission is to develop and strengthen the creative ecology of the region by connecting individuals and organizations and by providing the leadership, advocacy, professional development, information, resources, networking, programming and collaborative partnerships, that will build and support the capacity and infrastructure of the local arts, culture and heritage community.
Our job is to act as an antenna and sounding board for the ACH community, to identify challenges in the sector and develop and deliver services that will help our members and the broader creative community meet those challenges, discover new opportunities, implement useful and innovative strategies to strengthen their organizations and provide meaningful support to better serve artists, heritage professionals, cultural managers and audiences.
