One of the engagement tools for this strategy is the town hall. The Ministry is holding eleven of these across the province, five of which take place in the Hamilton, GTA, Barrie corridor, but none in the Peterborough region. EC3 attended the first town hall in Barrie on October 13. While individuals and organizations are very much encouraged to participate through the online tools, town halls and written submissions, EC3 believes it is important to present a united voice from the Arts, Culture and Heritage community in Peterborough.
To this end, we have developed this survey to encourage further engagement in our own community and to ensure that as many ideas and opinions as possible are recorded and promoted. Some of the questions in the survey are taken directly from the Discussion Paper provided by the Ministry and others have been designed to more directly pertain to Peterborough. T he full set of questions, as well as the Discussion Paper and ways to participate in the Culture Strategy, can be found here.
EC3 will prepare a written submission to the Ministry on behalf of our community. The written submission is due Monday, December 7 and a draft will be available for feedback from community members prior to the submission date so as to ensure all voices have been heard. EC3 will hold a Flash Forum on December 3rd, 2015 to receive feedback on the submission and collect any new ideas. The location of the forum will be announced shortly.
