Welcome to The Electric City Culture Council (EC3)
See our COVID-19 Updates page for links to resources and the latest updates from the Electric City Culture Council (EC3), and our Peterborough Arts Alive page for our COVID-19 response and recovery programs.
Vision & Mission
EC3 is an arm’s-length, not-for-profit arts service organization supporting individual artists and arts organizations in the City of Peterborough and 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, research, networking, programming and collaborative partnerships, that build and support the capacity of the local arts and culture sector.
Our work brings more and better opportunities for artists to create and for audiences to experience the arts.
We respectfully acknowledge that Peterborough and Peterborough County are located on the Treaty 20 Michi Saagiig territory and in the traditional territory of the Michi Saagiig and Chippewa Nations, collectively known as the Williams Treaties First Nations, which include: Curve Lake, Hiawatha, Alderville, Scugog Island, Rama, Beausoleil, and Georgina Island First Nations.
The Electric City Culture Council respectfully acknowledges that the Williams Treaties First Nations are the stewards and caretakers of these lands and waters in perpetuity, and that they continue to maintain this responsibility to ensure their health and integrity for generations to come.
We pledge to support them in this work and to continue on a path of truth and reconciliation.
