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 the land on which we gather is located on Treaty 20 Michi Saagiig territory, and in the traditional territory of the Michi Saagiig and Chippewa Nations, home to the Williams Treaties First Nations. EC3 recognizes that the Williams Treaties First Nations have been the stewards and caretakers of these lands and waters for countless generations, and that they continue this work to this day.
We commit EC3 to supporting their work and doing all we can to further efforts at real Truth and Reconciliation, which includes providing support to Indigenous artists and providing a space for their voices to be heard and respected.
