Ontario Introduces Culture Talks

On Thursday, September 24, the Province of Ontario launched province-wide public consultations – ‘Culture Talks’ – on Ontario’s first culture strategy. Consultations will run until December 7, 2015.

Your ideas will help to develop a strategy that sets out a vision for arts and culture in Ontario and identifies priorities and actions to guide the government’s support for the sector in the years to come.
